Drone battery does ok in winter, maybe losing 2 min. in flight time. Sc2 is different. The sc2 controller loses power quickly. That is until I taped 4 hand warmers on the sc2 to keep battery warmer. It works great, Plus it keeps fingers warm too.

My sc2 won’t even turn on in cold conditions got to warm it up with a heater before taking it out

It does, figuring a way to keep the controller working, by warming up the controllers batteries is the key. That's why I tried hand warmers. Besides, I think winter videos look pretty good under the right conditions. I would not try when it's below zero.
