    I have flown domestically in the US with my Phantom numerous times without any issues, but I am curious if anyone has flown internationally with theirs? I will be going to the UK->France->UK->USA and wanted to bring my Phantom along. Just curious how Customs reacts to the copter, particularly the LiPo batteries. I've heard stories from other aerial cinema companies where LiPo's were confiscated upon arrival to foreign countries. However these were massive 10,000 mah batteries, so hopefully a couple 2200's shouldnt give them any problems.

    Anyway, any feedback or tips would be great. Thanks!
