I am planning to take my Mavic with me to Jersey, Channel Islands next week on Easyjet from the UK. I'm carrying the Mavic in my cabin bag. I know that there's no issue with flying with the Lithium batteries as they are under 100wH. However, apart from protecting the batteries from short circuiting (I bought connector caps from China), there's nothing to say that the batteries have to be protected, for example, in individual bags as I have seen mentioned in a number of online boards.
What I'm wondering is do the batteries have to be protected in a bag, or is a bag a way of protecting the batteries from short circuit.
Also, I'd be interested in hearing if anyone has carried a drone on Easyjet before. Did you have any problems?
