    So all they did was pass it through the x-ray machine and that's it?

    Not a thing. Told the woman I had helicopter in my bag and she said no prob, wife was talking to a woman and that was it. She didn't hear or listen !
    BUT
    She told me an hour ago it's been funny watching me try to keep it quiet .

    Don't let it sit in view of guest or staff if your staying at a hotel. You won't have much recourse if it mysteriously disappears.

    I don't fly on commercial aircraft anymore so I'm not up on all those TSA security measures but...does that mean someone with bad intentions could slip past easily?

    Oh...have a great time and show up some epic video when you get back! :)

    People "slip past" with cameras all the time at airports, so what if his flies? I can fly with a firearm too if it is properly checked.
    People will always do nefarious things no matter how many rules you make.

    Last time I flew commercial, they swabbed my laptop with bomb detection fluid, x-rayed everything, made me open everything electronic, made me power up any device that was electronic, made me take off my belt and shoes, patted me down etc etc. (Maybe it was the turban and beard ya think?)

    So with all that "security" and all those billions spent on equipment it would still be that easy for someone with bad intentions to get past possibly with something that could bring down a plane. I'm just surprised.

    After the guy who had explosives in his shoes, I would have thought they'd be more careful is all.

    Thanks

    When was the last time you fly in the US? I haven't had to do the shoes thing recently. They swab because they are bored. Last time I traveled with my quad they didn't look at it twice. Slapped it on the belt in it's case and off I went. I suppose it depends on the airport too but those TSA people are just a dog & pony show anyway.

    Last time I flew commercial was about 10 years ago. When something happens the knees will collectively jerk, things will tighten up for a while....rinse repeat.
