I tried some cheap gloves this morning....the TX just felt slippery. I need grip. Sometimes things get tense and I find I have a death grip on the TX, it really seems to want to slip out worse with the death grip.

I flew for about 1 minute before I landed and took off the gloves. Going to try tight leather gloves, I used to wear those skydiving and they worked great for that. I figure if I can get skin tight leather gloves and cut the thumbs off they will work.

It was ~32 deg here as well this morning. My hands get cooooooold flying without gloves
