Please ask the airline for help, you should follow the relevant regulations and they have different limitation when it comes to battery.

Dubai is very strict regarding drones, you are required to have a registered drone with the local and federal aviation authorities, furthermore you require prior permission before flying from the aviation authorities. In addition to this Dubai has very strict privacy rules and regulations. I would strongly advise against flying a drone in Dubai , unless you live and operate there and adhere to the rules and regulations, you can end up with hefty fines and even worse......  
Please see the following links for further information:  

I would like to also highlight the point regarding privacy and cameras on a drone acording to the federal regulations:
