The best scenery is always on the road, and it's cool to travel far with a drone and let it record. But the question is, can drones be brought on plane?
Currently the TSA or FAA do not have any restrictions on carrying drones on board. But we should pay attention to that drones are live products, and airlines always have strict regulations on batteries. For example, most airlines do not allow passengers to travel with lithium-ion batteries in excess of 160 Wh.
What do you need to do before taking your drone on a plane?
First of all, make sure that your drone is turned off, and you have a suitable drone backpack or drone box for transportation to avoid damage during travel.
Second, take your battery out of the drone. Drones with batteries are not allowed in checked baggage. Please do not put the drone battery in the checked luggage, as it will be detected during the baggage security check at the airport and cause boarding delays.
The reason why lithium batteries of drones are not checked is to avoid the danger caused by the large amount of heat generated by lithium batteries. Therefore, your drone battery will be taken out separately and you will take it with you.
