On my way to Israel on a tour and took my P3P with me. No issues when I checked it. They asked about batteries and I opened the case and showed them what I had and how they were well protected. Not sure how it will be when I get to the most secure airport in the world upon arrival. However, if asked where I will fly, my response will be, "Nowhere unless I get permission or there is a general or specific model aviation rule to follow for photographers. I'll report back on check in and what guidelines are given. The "money" shot I really want to get is from the top of Massada, if I can!
