| This morning the aerobird wouldn't start. This afternoon it worked fine.... | | The difference was temperature.... | | Morning 55-60 degrees | Afternoon 80 degrees
Note that this would be very abnormal.
Planes can handle 100 degrees F, and they can handle 0 degrees F. For a glow plane, you'll probably need to tune the engine a bit going between the extremes, but for an electric, it should just work. The battery might need a bit of warming up first if it's really cold, but even if you don't, it should work at least somewhat.
Sounds like a loose coonnection, or a dead spot on the motor brushes, or a dead battery (yes, I know you said it was charged, but ...)
