    I have flown many times with the Phantom 3 but have always kept the propellers in checked bags. Now with the mavic I want to just bring everything with me and pass on the checked bags. Whats everyones experience with flying with the propellers in a carry on? Any issues with the tub stacking agency... I mean TSA?

    Thanks!

    Propellers?

    What makes you think they would be an issue? I can just see a hijacker wielding a Mavic with 4 spinning props as a weapon.

    I think you will be fine.

    Ha, that is an entertaining image...

    Just wondering if anyone has had an issue. I agree they are a non issue but we all know how the TSA is.

    Thanks

    I took mine on two flights over Thanksgiving. No issues whatsoever.

    My wife flies with 10" long knitting needles with pointy ends. I think your props will be ok.

    I've flown many times with copious amounts of propellers. No issues here. I always fly my drone and all other supplies as carry-on. I've even (accidentally) gotten away with a jewelers screwdriver set.
