True it was on an airline but this was my first time to fly with the drone. Some things to consider. - The airport security did, at one location, have to inspect the bag and wipe stuff on the outside of the P3 I guess looking for explosives - If you are in group 5 boarding you may not find a spot to store it on a full flight. I got lucky. - The DroneCrates backpack has been awesome for the trip but I was questioned by an airline attendant on whether it would fit in the sizing station for carry on. Not sure if it does but it fit in the overhead bin just fine. I flew to San Francisco and did get a chance to fly around the bay area. In Portland OR now and hopefully will get some of the mountain ranges around here if I have time.
