Low Temperature Affect Drone Flight

Does Low Temperature Affect Drone Flight?

Flying a drone in winter is a new experience. You may find that the drone control becomes less sensitive and the drone consumes more power! That’s because low temperatures affect the flight performance of drones to a certain extent.

Sometimes, winter flying can be challenging in extreme conditions. Low temperatures or condensation can affect flight performance, and you may encounter rain, fog, or snow when flying in winter.

Although flying a drone in extreme conditions is not recommended, many drone pilots are always eager to take the plunge when faced with the beauty of winter. How can you fly safely and take great photos in the winter?

Flying Your Drone Safely in the Winter

Tips for safely flying a drone in winter

  • Check weather conditions before setting off. Avoid strong winds, freezing rain and snow.
  • Do not fly in temperatures below 0°C (32°F).
  • Please fly where the GPS signal is strong
  • Pay attention to the takeoff and landing of the drone, and try to use the drone landing pad.
  • Take care to clean and inspect motors, camera lenses, sensors and propellers.

How to solve the problem of drone battery draining quickly in winter?

Autel Drones Work in Cold Weather
  • Please fully charge the battery before use and bring Autel spare batteries.
  • Let the drone motor warm up before flying in winter.
  • Pay attention to flying smoothly during flight, as too much drone movement will speed up battery consumption.
  • Please pay close attention to the battery status of your drone.
  • Do not leave the controller exposed to extreme cold for extended periods of time.

Autel drones use lithium polymer (LiPo) batteries. Cold temperatures can push your battery out of its comfort zone and shorten flight times, slow down the chemical activity within the battery, and cause the battery to drain faster than usual.

It’s a great idea to explore drone photography during the winter months. However, drone pilots should pay attention to the impact of low temperature on the flight performance of the drone.
