It will be a good torture test on motors and speed controllers thats for sure.
I have been doing a better job of staying hydrated. Drinking water before, during and after I am flying.
Just be sure to mix in some other stuff if your out in the heat for a long time. You can drink a bunch of water but if you sweat it all out you'll loose electrolytes and sodium. That's a mixture for heat stroke and passing out. Throw in some Gatorade as well.
I learned this the hard way last year at our E-flyin. Luckily we have a paramedic in the club and power so they got me out of the heat and in a RV with AC.
