    I recently came across something like this: Turnigy Transmitter Muff - Black and was wondering if anyone on here has purchased something similar for the Mavic. I fly in the cold, and gloves are a bit too cumbersome for all the controls/size of the Mavic controller.

    Can anyone suggest what they use for flying in the cold and keeping your hands warm?

    Thanks

    thinking a stylus and thin gloves may do fine for me... in Minneapolis Minnesota.

    You're that insecure? You're already flying a drone which kind of makes you look like an idiot as is, why not keep warm while doing it...

    Yeah the stylus is actually a good idea, hadn't thought about that.

    I already tried it on -22 C. It worked just fine but you need to find a way to keep the battery and Hands warm before and while flying. Good luck!

    I really, really feel the cold!

    -22C - my hands were frozen today at 0C flying out on the moors in England.

    I use these gloves for flying - which are think enough for some warmth but not too thick to fly with:

    extremities X touch glove - Terra Nova Equipment


    Also I wear a down jacket.

    Even then my hands feel cold!

    I wish I could find a way to have warmer hands but a glove any thicker would stop me me flying.
