Comon Max, the big birds can handle it, and most FBL systems and electronics can handle ( at least my vbar FBL units ).. as per Mr.Mel..

"Actually the LED in the sensor is there for a reason, it heats up the sensor enough in 10 seconds so it should be OK at much further down temps than otherwise.
Spec for the sensor is -20C to +85C
Like all gyros, do not change temp too fast (i.e. from room temp to -20C, then you need to wait)"

So -20C hey why not, I have flown in mild snow flurries ( not the really stick to everything wet stuff ) and 60Km/hr wind gusts ( that gets interesting ) in a 700 Class bird… So I say if you can layer up, I wear dollar store gloves , you know the stretchy kind , and they are enough to keep the wind off the hands…LOL

Cheers all… and happy Winter Flying !! The Addiction Continues !
and Good Health
