Interesting, on my last trip to Alaska, last year, I was told to bring them as a carry-on. Which I did, all in a plastic toolbox with planes, tx and all necessary gear. Box was opened and inspected without a hitch. I also believe it has something to do with the ma's of the lipos. My largest I believe was
400ma 2s/ in a lipo sack.
