Sure. But basically, all the subjects are getting cut off.

Gaza - can you make the subject line section in the forum topic list wider? It's cutting off the subject field really short.

You';ve got a few things to consider here.

One is "importation" of the equipment...for a fairly small multirotor I think you';d be ok, but the US for example can get very snotty if you bring in an fpv copter for example.  Their laws about flying one are very different to the UK and are I *think* illegal in some states, or certainly legislation was being looked into.

Another consideration is purely practical...airlines restrict the number of lipo';s you are allowed to take.  Best to check with your airline about that.

I imagine Jamaica by it';s very nature will be more laid back about bring a copter into the country (even more so if you break it down into pieces and rebuild when you';re there).  Might be worth doing a bit more poking just to be on the safe side.

I took my mcpx broken down into it';s component parts to the US  a few years back and put an 808 camera on it and flew around a bit :)  Mind you it fitted in a mobile phone box haha.

thanks for that, some good points for me to consider .
I have checked for the lipo,s so planning on only taking 2 or 3.

biggest worry is in the airport ,trying to explain what it is .

And where would you carry it ? hand luggage or in the check in luggage ?

I would go for the hand luggage. At least you can explain what it is if they see anything odd on the x-ray. If it';s in your check-in luggage and it gets picked up you could spark a security alert!!

take a wooden framed jobbie, make one or buy one off Chris...probably won';t even show up on the xray, then electronics hand luggage, Tx in the suitcase.  Sure you';ll be fine.
