    Hi all
    Hope I have posted this query to the right section.
    I'm a relative newbie and intend travelling overseas with my Phantom 2 rig. I'm carry 4 standard Phantom LiPo flight batteries plus batteries for FatShark FPV. I'm just wondering if anyone has any advice for carriage of batteries by air. I'm presuming they will be carried in "carry-on" baggage? Has anyone had any problems travelling by air with their UAV rig?
    Thanks for your help!

    You can carry them on. DO NOT check them. Just expect to be stopped and "swabbed". I've never had any issues traveling internationally with my (8) P1 batteries.
