    Hi,
    do you know may I bring a drone to Chile without local licence? If so, do I need any papers?

    Thanks!

    I don't know the laws in Chile, but you may run into some problems carrying your LiPo batteries on the plane. Even with DJI 'smart batteries' LiPo's are still considered a huge fire hazard and air carriers will make you bring them in your carry on bags. If they're checked, they'll be confiscated. I hear some airlines don't even let them on-board. The rules are very uneven right now so check with your carrier.
