Sadly it's virtually impossible to bring a drone into Egypt.  It will be confiscated at the airport.  I've always taken a drone on my holiday trips so what can a guy do?  Well, I brought along an Insta360 ONE RS camera mounted on a 3m long collapsable pole.  Here is a video of one of my many adventures in Egypt.

Necessity is the Mother of invention
Good idea to take the extendable pole. Thanks for sharing your journey.
Nothing on Earth would have induced my good lady to enter such a place

Out of interest how would they know at the airport you had a drone,   or do they search everyones bags as you enter the country?

Interesting video.    I don't think that would be an ideal climb down or out for me at 6'2" tall.

They X-Ray all the bags.  Even the hotel had an X-ray scanner & metal detector at the entrance.

I'm 6'-1" and made it without rubbing my back on the ceiling too much.  My afterthought was how do they keep oxygen down there, there's no ventilation system.

I had to go through 3 scan stations when going into the airport to catch a flight, and of course, there are uniformed guys with machine guns everywhere.

That's a great question.  You'd think without any ventilation system the air would get really stale very fast.

Can you please tell me how much per day was the storage?

Flying to India via egyptair with a 10hr layover in Cairo. Am I allowed to have my drone in my checked luggage? Since I won’t be getting my luggage in Cairo

I don't think so but you cannot put lipo batteries in checked luggage.  So in your carry-on have the transmitter and drone batteries and put everything else in checked luggage.  Typically bags going to the baggage claim belts are x-rayed but your checked bag will sit on the tarmac until it gets loaded onto the next plane.
