I posted this idea a couple of weeks ago but am giving this more thought even though I don't have any immediate travel plans (had hoped to go to Thailand next month but don't think I'll be able to get away). My idea is to remove the gimbal camera and then fold the rotor arms slightly up to reduce height below 9" so that it can fit in a carry-on case that is 9" deep. Can unfold the arms into flying position as that would require a case much too wide. Here is a Pelican case that could probably work with this approach: www.amazon.com/Pelican-1510-000-110-Carry-Case-Black/dp/B0002SKHIK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1464148900&sr=8-1&keywords=pelican+carry+on+case I would maybe also check my backpack as baggage (empty except foam inserts) so that I'd have it to carry around once I was touring. Thoughts?
