    I'm heading there in a few weeks. Any issues getting my P3P through customs?

    Well, not that I know (sorry to jump in but I am CR citizen). I did bring both of my drones from Miami on recent personal trips, put the on the regular check luggage, no problem at all.
    Should you are stopped and asked, just say it's an "aerial camera" for personal use, that should be enough.

    This is great news! I think this solidifies my decision to bring the P3. How long ago did you travel?

    Been in and out of CR with my P1 and P3, never a problem. Going Thursday with my Solo (I know... treason!) for 10 days.

    Both carry on and checked... the P1 has a hard case and it was no problem. With new IATA regs though, they might make you carry on your batteries even if you want to check the bird. The Solo I'm taking this time has a backpack.

    Ok cool. Hoping to carry on but may have to choose between the pelican case the P3 pelican case or the DSLR gear bag as my 1 carry on. If it gets checked the batteries definitely stay with me for safety.
