In the UK unfortunately Inspire in its carry case is too big size wise.

We tried to get it on board last week but was denied at security.They said the inspire itself is now not allowed airside so it has to be checked in.

Been speaking to the CAA to see if this is correct as I thought as long as there were no batteries attached to the inspire then it should be able to go through. Still it seems no one really knows what the rules are.

Anyone travel from hong kong with inspire 1?

I just flew in from Hong Kong two weeks ago.

When I arrived at Hong Kong and went to Manila, they allowed me to carry it on.
However, when I left Hong Kong to go to America, they made me check it in. Which irritated me, because it was the exact same airliner.

But, it's understandable. I suggest investing in a Heavy Duty case. If you plan on traveling with her.

It is airline policies which vary from one to the other. Southwest in the U.S. allows it as a carry on.

Glad to hear that!!
Basically, if you get past the guards before x rays begin, you're through. Im guessing, everyone after that just assumes it was approved.
But I suggest you get a heavier duty case, just because they WILL make you check it in if they see it.
I feel like I got pretty lucky. But who knows, you can test your luck!! haha it's not impossible that's for sure. If you do try and sneak it, just try and avoid being alone so they don't scan what your carrying. Try and keep the case discrete. I'm thinking the busier, the better. When I was stopped, there weren't very many people in line.
And just for your info, I flew Cathay Pacific Hong Kong to LA.

I just received the case yesterday. As you can see, no modification is needed, the original DJI case fits perfectly inside the Pelican case.

I bought with foam, but finally it was not necessary. It cost me 230 dollars at BHPhotovideo.com. It is not necessary to to remove anything of the DJI case.
