Anyone have some comments or a quick and dirty list of items I should pack in my carry on?

I would hesitate taking anything RC related in a carry on. I have packed my TX, charger and lipos in my checked bags before with no issues. I'd hate for you to go through security and have them confiscate your TX.

Either that, or ship everything to your dad.

X2 Ship it. Priority Flate Rate. No point in taking a LIPO on a plane.

Mine tops out at 5.9V. At least that's what it says on the front of the transmitter?

Depending on the crash, you might be able to fit it into one...

Can anyone tell what the difference is in the Pitts M12-S and the Pitts Python? I am trying to decide whether I want to build an Aeroworks Pitts Python and a Great Planes M12-S. I am talking about the outline of the aircraft. They look almost identical to me. Can anyone tell me if there are any cosmetic differences?

The Python is a modified version of the model 12, I believe it is a slightly different canopy, and lighter building materials. so visually they are pretty much the same.
