What, why no fly? I live in MI and flew couple days ago when it was 34 degrees, no problems. Just keep spare battery warm so when you switch out it will fly immediately. When booting up the drone it was ready to fly almost immediately. Your drone will tell you when it is safe to fly. I took some awesome pictures and videos of the snow and the lake I live on. Florida is way too hot in the summer.

Autel just had a recent good article on its website about cold weather flying. As Bonsy mentioned, keeping the battery warm first is good. Autel also suggests hovering the aircraft about 30 to 60 seconds close to the take off site to let the system warm up first. They suggest that as the procedure for every launch even in good weather. The battery performs worse when it is cold and will not work as long.

Perfect Delta Blue, that is the reason I am now flying during the winter.
