Keep the #16 camera warm?
Today is the most perfect day I have seen in a few months. Not a single cloud on the sky, no wind, the sun is shining and the ground is covered in snow...
But the last times I have used my 808 #16 camera it turns off after about 30 seconds.
Is there a simple way to keep it warm for at least one flight? I can't really think of something that would work. It's -10 degrees celcius now.
I would really appreciate some ideas! Thank you very much in advance!

I am having the same not so RC friendly conditions.
If you have kept your #16 warm until just before the flight i should be able to record for more than 30 sec.
Try looking at foam - and packing the whole camera in, in a healthy dose of it.
I have about -5c here now and my cameras will do more than 30 sec.

For me here during the winter in temps from -5c to 0c, if I use the camera right after it has been run to full charge I can get about 6-7 minutes with it exposed on the plane as opposed to getting about 35-40 minutes at 15c.
