    Looking for input on traveling by air with your phantom. Specifically traveling with the lipo batteries, are they allowed on the plane? Traveling to St. Croix, USVI in a few months and wanted to take my FC40 along to get some nice video of the island. I know you're not allowed to ship them by air. Thanks.

    If you have a case that organizes everything you should be fine. I was able to take it with me to burning man in Nevada from Florida. I had no problems.

    I just made a trip from Florida to Michigan 2 weeks ago. I carried the FC40 on the plane as carry on baggage. I carried 3 lipo batteries in my checked baggage. No problem with FAA security, they asked a few questions out of curiosity but that's all. No problem at all.

    Thanks for the info, and yes I do have a case that keeps it all organized.

    It's my understanding that lipos cannot be checked and must always be carried on? Can anyone confirm or deny? I've flown with mine a half a dozen times and it's always been carry on.
