Bringing Lipo batteries on airplane (traveling)

Hi everyone, I will be traveling (flying) to Europe in September, I am planning to bring my quadcopter with me with ~6 spare batteries.
I know that Lipo batteries could be very dangerous, if misused or mishandled. I was also reading on internet about safety regulations, that state: Lipos are prohibited in check-in language, but are allowed on carry-on as long, as they contain less than 8 grams of lithium.
I would like to hear some feedback from you guys, who been traveling with Lipos on airplane. Also, your guy’s suggestion, do’s and don’ts.
Feedback is highly appreciated.

You will probably have to ship them to yourself.
