    Hand warmers for flying in the cold

    Does anyone use hand warmers for flying in the cold? It is becoming cold enough here in the Northeast that my fingers loose their touch during a 10 or 15 minute flight. I have some old Jon E catalytic hand warmers. They work great in my pockets but I can't fly with my hands in my pockets. I'm wondering if I could put one inside a finger-less glove.

    Anyone have and suggestions? .

    Look @ Tower Hobbies, they used to have a " Tx glove". Works well once you get used to it, I'm Canadian so i know about winters

    Go to "Good/Will" etc. & get a SMALL kids winter jacket (for about $5.00)......cut the sleeves off at the elbow......fly with TX inside the jacket, your hands through the sleeves to hold the TX.....problem solved.....been using this for awhile now....FWIW

    I use a TX Glove when it gets really cold and/or when it's snowing. Put a chemical warmer inside and it's toasty. When not using a glove we take a propane tank (gas grill tank)with a double heater on top and put it at the flight line on top of a starting table and use fingerless type gloves. You could slide a chemical warmer inside a glove but they get hot too !

    Why doesn't some company make self-heating transmitters? I'd love that.
