    Hey guys,
    This is more geared for someone at FF but how well does the ALTA handle heat and what's the highest Temps you've flown it in? We are located in Phoenix and constantly need to fly in Temps upwards of 110*F and sometimes close to 120*f. Have you tested in these types of situations?

    Thanks
    Josh

    On the other end of the thermostat... I would be interested in knowing the cold weather limits.

    (Not to hijack your thread, just approaching winter here).

    As Moderators are wont to do, I've amended the Thread title to encompass Ben's question. :)

    Hey Cedar.....nice to see you on the forum. As you say, 120F is "mad dogs and Englishmen" heat....
