Lipos on commercial airliners?

I'm facepalming now, but I asked my relatives to get me some lipos, 1800 3s, and 2200 3s respectively, and I'm flying out of town to see them this weekend, and exchange late christmas gifts, and I have no idea how to handle taking lipos on a commercial jet. I've heard varying reports, and the website isn't very clear. I can probably ship them, but that would be a hassle. Anyone have any advice?

I've carried a box of of 3s 2100's through the security line before. Per the recommendations on a thread in this site, I printed the specific FAA regulations and the TSA people were very nice and didn't hastle me too much. A couple passengers in the security line who saw them were a bit freaked out though since they look like little sticks of dynamite with fuses so I wouldn't flash them around too much.
