    Hi Everyone,

    Is there anyone used to handcarry the Phantom over Sydney Airport? Is it illegal or not?

    Just make sure your batteries are in your carry-on luggage and not in your checked luggage.

For work I travel around the globe and I have had quite a bit of hassle from our friends at security control who are unfamiliar with the rules of transporting drones and I have been told wrongly that it is illegal to carry a drone and they have even tried to confiscate it.
