What is the minimum operating temperature?
This releases in the middle December which is close to the start of winter and gets fairly cold in Northern States/Canada. Just wondering if it is worth buying at launch or waiting until spring when temperatures get warmer.

The problem is the battery, the operating temperatures are from 41 to 104 F, (5 to 40 C), you can keep your batteries warm inside a backpack but if the conditions are chilly wind the temperature can drop very quick. I had a problem last year flying with a Phantom on winter under very cold conditions and the advice is better to avoid to fly with very cold weather. I guess you can wait to order until spring.

I found that the battery was an issue, but not the batteries for the drone. The iPhone battery has an issue of shutting down if it gets too cold.
It was a good thing that when I started seeing issues on the phone, i brought the drone down and landed it.
Then my phone konked out.
Did not start (even though I was charging it) till i had it in the car warming up.
Next time I will carry one of those "hand-warmers" for the phone.
The battery in the controller and the battery on the drone seemed fine.
My apple watch said it was around 32 deg.
Any colder then I would definitely watch out.
