Lipo Query


#1

Have any of you got any experience with taking lipos on aeroplanes? Good or bad? I intend to take mine with me on an internal flight in my luggage?

The terms and conditions of carriage on your ticket (or the thing you just clicked without reading on the website) will list what you can and can’t carry.

Looks easy enough by your .PDF , carry them on as hand luggage in a clear plastic bag with tape over the terminals.
I though they might be looking for a MSDS, of which i cant seem to find for my specific make.

I had no problems with carrying 2 4sLiPO 4Ah batteries in my hand baggage to the Falklands last June. I taped up the contacts, put them in a clear plastic bag complete with a copy of the rules and regs of transporting LiPO’s in aircraft just in case someone queried the matter.

Good luck and HNY.

They didn’t even bother with my 2 lipos, more interested In my 2 transcievers etc. Typical that…
