    I know some people are nervous or post their experiences going through airports to help others so I figured I would share my first experience going through the Chicago Midway airport on my way to the Orlando area with it from this morning.

    I brought my bag as a carry on like every one suggested and my bag did get pulled off to the side after going through the scanner. The lady was very nice and polite and laughingly asked if it was a drone. I said yes and then she asked if I had to register it now and I answers yes. She swabbed it down real quick and asked how much this model cost and I told her. She then thanked me for being patient and I was on my way just like that. Went very smooth.

    I flew it down to 30% on my last flight is what I had it at. I also had one of those lipo bags to put my battery in but they never looked at it.
