John,

I've found silk glove liners are perfect for the 6 or so mins needed on the sticks, very thin and you get all the feel without cutting the tips off.

Found @ your local cycle shop

I need to try the silk gloves because the cold isn't bad but the wind sucks.

For some reason transmitter mitts always looked awkward - do they work?

GREAT videos! Have you ever tried Under Armour? No problem with sweat-induced cold with that stuff!

no I haven't tried the under armor stuff. but the better long underwear looks like the Underarmor stuff.

Re: silk gloves. No I haven't used those. I tried various gloves and modding tips in past and never found something I liked. The Trans glov works great and takes about 1-2 flights to get used to. Not awkward at all, as long as u support the top of it so it doesn't sit/rest on your hands. I have my strap gooped to my "cover" so it lifts it once it's clipped to the trans.

John,

Is that device on the left of your transmitter glove a pot to control temperature of the heating pads you have in there?
