    Hi!

    I will travel to NZ this friday. Will be there for 4 weeks. Im considering taking my Phantom 2 with zenmuse gimbal + FPV system with me. I have a case for everything, but what I wonder is if there are the general rules taking this kind of equipment on an airplane?
    Is there something I need to consider? Should I place the batteries in the checked in baggage for instane rather than taking it as a carry-on baggage?

    Have anyone of you been stopped taking this equipment as an carry-on baggage?

    Thanks...

    Thanks for the info, travelling for wedding on Valentines day and considering helping with photo shoot instead of doing cocktail hour.

    I missed the answer. Does the Lipo battery go in checked or overhead baggage. Any problem with TSA?

    Keep your batteries in your carry on.

    I took my Phantom to Maui last weekend and had no problems. The TSA just opened my case and swabbed it.
