    I'm traveling to Vegas with my phantom this week. Carrying it on the plane.

    Anything I need to be careful of traveling, and/or flying it in Vegas?

    Thanks!

    With the airport so close the entire city is basically one big no fly zone

    This. It's class B airspace to the surface which requires ATC clearance.

    Don't check your batteries but bring them as hand luggage on the plane. Lipo batteries are not allowed as checked luggage.

    I don't think you quite understand a no fly zone

    No the no-fly zone info was helpful. The other comments aren't.

    Thanks.

    Its a no go, the grand canyon is a national park, i went there this april and got stopped before i could even launch and hoover dam is soooo crowded and windy that you either get shot out before ever lauching or be afraid of to many people around or too windy, been there done that

    our friends in States better make a list of places where you can actually fly your drones. I believe list is going to be shorter than the list of no fly zones :)))))))

    So as I said, almost everywhere.

    A bit of common sense as to where you should and shouldn't fly should give you the answer.

    so not true, to say "the entire city is basically one big no fly zone" would be to say Vegas is no larger than a 5 mile radius. I live here and fly all of the time on either side of the strip. just not in the 5 mile radius of the of McCarran airport. We have 1 large and a few smaller airports. I have flown near the 2 of the smaller airports as well as the many heliports, I called them up, left a vm or spoke to someone and flew. Please do not be discouraged by this post I am replying to. I know this post is old but could not just not say something.
