TSA Doesn't List Drones The closest things to drones I could find in TSA's database of packable items are radio controlled helicopters which apparently can be taken on a plane both as check-in as well as carry-on luggage. TSA even gives packing advice. Quoting from the linked site: Search Results For: RC helicopter Check or Carry-on You may ...

First of all, no backpacks allowed, no bags big enough to bring anything worth the effort. Secondly, all bags going into any Paris museum are scanned and/or looked through, basically for bombs but a drone might stand out enough for the searcher to take note.

While drones are permitted in the Seychelles, you would first want to check whether the airline carrier(s) allow it in your checked baggage, and for all of your flights, not just the Dubai stopover. As this regulation is under the purview of the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (DCA), and you will arrive and depart through its airport, you may come ...

I think your fears are just that .. fears. The official CASA website: Flying drones/remotely piloted aircraft in Australia has several sections about flying drones in Australia.

Just flew to the Virgin Islands and back. I stopped and asked 2 different TSA agents if it's ok to bring my drone when flying. Both said yes - they see drones in carry-on bags all the time they say. I'm planning to give it a try when I go to Montana next week.

There are two parts to this question. First: Are drones allowed in Argentina? According to this site drones for hobby use were allowed in July 2015. You should check shortly before traveling, but I feel that the chances are good. Second: How much value can you bring into Argentina? It looks like adults can bring goods to a value of $US 300 and minors (...

I've flown within the USA, to the US from Canada and Europe, and all over Europe without issues. Here are a few tips: Many airlines now have a drone specific page on their website - search using something like "can I take my drone on British Airways" to find it. Print this page and take it with you when you fly. There are likely to be limits on the amount ...

As long as the remote control and the drone are off (they would probably consider those as radios/remote controlled vehicles, which are not allowed to be used in flight) I don't see an issue. You will need to register the drone with the FAA in order to fly it, and I might be wrong, but you may need an address inside the US as part of registration. I have ...

Back from the trip :) No problems at all with the drone. I passed through both countries customs without any issues at all. Didn't fly it in Dubai though due to lacking a state license). Just an advice for Seychelles, beware that Air Seychelles planes fly at relatively low altitudes and there are a couple helicopters flying too so you better keep an eye on ...

The code of conduct states that drones are not allowed in the stadiums, and that makes total sense. From what I gather the normal drone rules apply: do not fly over crowded areas or other restricted areas like the Kremlin and near airports.

So, I recently took a flight to Manila from Paris  with my drone and batteries in my LiPo bag and card cases.  When I advised the ticket agent that I had the Mavic inside the bag I was about to check in, she was shocked.  Called her manager and advised me that it was not allowed through Muscat, Oman.  They made me take out my drone and hold it in the airport ...

I have taken my Phantom 4 case on 4 flights. I purchased a case specifically for this drone. Case is on wheels and it fits in the overhead compartment easily. No one has questioned me or examined the contents of the case.
