Review Hobbyking TX glove and universal heater

Since we still have cold wheather the transmitter glove and universal heater from Hobbyking is a must for addicted flyers.

There is really not much to say about the glove itself. Most transmitters will fit since it is quite big.

Universal heater before unboxing.

Neatly packed.

Instructions on the bottom side of the box, no manual inside needed.

Control unit with wires and plugs.

Heat pads before installation.

Control unit after changing connectors to a T-plug instead.

Check out the short film we made on these products.

Be aware, this thing can get really hot! The range is from 30-80 degrees celsius which probably could cause serious burns. We flew in -7 degrees with 8 m/s winds and it was almost impossible to fly more than a couple of minutes not using the glove/heater combo. We power the heater with a 3S Turnigy LiPo, 1300mAh which lasts for one flight.
