The Blueye underwater drone weighs less than 9 kg and can easily be carried on as hand-luggage while traveling with an airplane. If you wish to check-in your underwater drone as extra luggage, that is an option as well.
The drone can easily be carried along as a cabin bag on board airplanes. Make sure to turn off the devices before checking in. Make sure to cover up the battery contact point with non-conductive tape to insulate them and pack each battery in a separate plastic bag. Have spare batteries in hand luggage, when going through airport security. Don't place spare batteries in the checked-in luggage! Security will look at the battery specification, which is clearly marked on the label on the battery. They will be interested in the battery capacity, which is 96.2Wh, under the threshold limit of 100Wh. More to that Blueye battery has been certified for IEC 62133
Sometimes it's convenient to send the drone as ordinary checked-in luggage. Make sure to turn off the drone and pack the drone in a protective transport box (e.g. the transport box delivered with your Blueye Pioneer or Blueye Pro). In general, we advise carrying all your batteries as hand-luggage. Make sure to cover up the battery contact point with non-conductive tape to insulate them and pack each battery in a separate plastic bag.
Have a great flight!
