I feel as UK weather goes we have had a very nice summer for helicopter flying. We've had an extreme of temperatures this year. Early on we had the "beast from the east" a rather prolonged spell of really cold weather. I did some flying in this period but after a couple of packs my hands were getting numb but the heli seemed to keep going fine. Three months later and it was in the high 90's, again challenging to fly in the hot sun and this time I think the electronics in the heli were reaching their temperature limits as I was getting some tail issues and trashed an ESC. Once this very hot weather backed off a bit we have had pretty ideal weather apart from some windy periods. Today a perfectly still warm day and a chance to fly three packs and get some ideal flights in.
