Question RC Flight Hot vs. Cold temperatures

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi Folks,

Ever notice it is more difficult to take off in hot weather vs cold weather?

(I know full size planes are affected by this)

I have experienced this 3 summers in a row using an RC planes (SuperSportster .40 & Nexstar), does this indicate something I am doing wrong?
Nothing like the smell of castor in the morning!!!!!

Super Sportster 40 MKII
Nexstar Select - Rebuild (covering job, convert to tail dragger)

P-47 Razorback
Harvard (AT-6)
(Undecided on a bipe, pitts? or hog? 60"-80" wingspan)
