In 2 months I will be going to Lombok. I have a DJI Mavic Air Drone and would like to take it to Lombok. Is this possible? What about the airline (Singapore Air), can I take it in my hand luggage?

Whilst I had to look this up, it confirmed my gut feeling that recreational use of drones within Indonesia was fine.

Indonesia Drone Laws

There are some common sense restrictions listed in the link. The only ones that stood out for me were:

  • Don't fly over temples (I'd suggest not near either)
  • Use common sense and don't fly over crowds
  • Ensure you are nowhere near a government facility
  • Stay below 150m
  • Only fly during daylight

Drones should be fine in hand luggage. The weight and dimensions of your drone should be fine, but ensure all batteries are appropriately packaged for flight.
