    If any of you have traveled via airline with your quad... Please let me know if you have any suggestions. So far I know I have to carry on the batteries. Thanks!

    Not so much a suggestion, more reassurance that it's not a big deal. I took mine to Alaska last month and it could not have been any easier. I used a hardshell backpack, breezed through security and then stored it in the overhead bin on the plane. I was honestly expecting more of an event when it went through the x-ray, but the TSA agents just commented that it was cool and to enjoy it! Super easy!

    I like reading regs/rules for myself so I made a blog post last week to link directly to FAA and airline LIPO rules. I've got a bunch of the major carriers but can add more if you are flying on one not listed. Let me know if any of the links don't work!

    Check it out here and let me know what you think.
