Hello

I am boarding a plane to indonesia and flying on the Southern China airline. I will be leaving from SFO and will have a layaway in china. I am wondering what i need to prepare for if i take my drone with me. I will be taking extra propellers and 1 extra battery.

Any advice would help so i wont have to worry about either getting something confiscated or missing my expensive flight to paradise.

Thank you,

LMM

Check with your airline on policy for taking lipo batteries on board. You can be sure they won't allow them in the hold, also some airlines only allow so many batteries so if your flying with someone you can share out, some airlines expect you to have batteries discharged also put them in lipo bag or bags,, there should be no problem with your aircraft.

i looked them up and they are pretty much the same as the US. Dont fly near airports, or in NFZ, dont fly over people, and don't fly higher than a 150 meters.

This is from China Southern Air's website.

Lithium battery
When carrying a reasonable number of spare batteries needed for the travel as well as mobile phone, laptop, camera and other equipment with lithium batteries for personal use on the fight, it should be noted that:

1、Electric equipment can be put in the checked baggage or carried with the carry-on baggage ,while spare batteries within a reasonable number can be only put into the carry-on baggage when boarding;

2、During the flight, please power off all the equipment with lithium battery to prevent them from accidental start –up. A single spare battery should be packed independently, whose electrodes must be protected properly to avoid spontaneous explosion and combustion caused by friction, collision and short circuit;
