    depends whether you live in Florida or not.

    I've tested several models in a hot garage which regularly reaches 35-40C and those models are still OK.

    I accidentally left one in a car on a warm (not hot) day, no thermometer but probably 50-60C at a guess. the model softened and did a Dali on me with lots of droopy arms.

    would have been a nice effect had I wanted to do that..
