Has anyone given thought to some sort of gearbox protection for winter flying outdoors? The mQX would be a great winter flying machine but I have concerns about ice & snow jamming the pinion gears.

I'm seriously considering making clear plastic (PET) covers that would slip on over the gearbox/landing feet. Perhaps make them a bit taller to increase the ground clearance a bit. It wouldn't take much, a simple mold and a few minutes on the vac former.

Comments?
Excellent idea! Mine even jams up now with blades of grass! Please take pics of your covers and post them!
