Default cold temperature no radio

I went to the field today to fly my twist. Temperature in the low 30's. I turne on the transmitter and then the receiver.....nothing...no response. I checked both the batteries in my plane and in the tx, both were fully charged. I came home and brought the plane into the heated house and replaced the crystal with a different one, the receiver now works. I replaced the receiver with the original one and it now works as well. I believe the problem is in the crystal and will try checking by putting in freezer and cooling it down. Has anyone ever had this problem?

Hmm.... we have flown many times in much colder weather... I ahve had no problems.. My buddies older JR radio seems to glitch just a bit when it is cold, but it still works fine..

My Futaba 9C has worked flawlessly in the cold.....except the LCD screen goes very s l o w l y
