    Yes. But you need to take it all in Hand Luggage not Hold Luggage (may get away with the remote in hold luggage but I wouldn't dare with the way they sometimes treat bags). Each airline is different as well so double check for who ever your flying what allowance they have for LIPO batteries.

    I got stopped at security, but showed them that BA allowed 4 batteries smaller than a certain Ampere Hour and they let me go through. I had everything packed into one back for hold luggage including charger, controler and P3P, with the batteries just taped over the terminals not in any special LIPO bags.

    Check that LIPOs if integrated / in a device can be checked with your airlines website but to be honest I wouldn't risk it, I always carry the controller in hand luggage along with the Phantom and batteries.
