it will but after a 5 minute flight you'll never want to fly in the snow/cold again. your fingers will freeze and they wont want to move and it makes the plane harder to fly. if you're using the dx6i dont wear gloves. you'll drop it because it will slip out of your hands like a bar of saop. the dx8 has rubber gripys so it would be okay i think. just my FYI on cold weather flying.

ok but my 2200mah batts only last about 4 minutes in the cold.. so the 1800mah would be a short flight..

Warm them up in the car or in your house before going out. Keep them in your pockets while flying. Wrap them in insulation (bubble wrap, etc.) to keep them warm, if you can.

LiPos don't like the cold very much - but it's easy to keep them warm.

keep the batterys warm in the house then go fly with them. they should saty somewhat warm. plus they make good handwarmers after the flight.
