Ice on the blades...


Last week the weather is very cold in Belgium and I performed lots of flights with my MK. The MK seems to handle the cold very well.

What I observed today is icing on the blades... Not too surprising I suppose, it is -5C and foggy.

Perhaps performance did decrease, but I did not feel it. I did not fly longer than 5 minutes, but if I would fly longer, perhaps it could perhaps become problematic.
Yes, it is probably not surprising, but I never considered it. Now I know
