Community Question

I am thinking of taking a trip across the USA.
To see my son who is 3,600 miles away.
Take my laptop with ez-builder and projects.
Take my tablet with ez-builder mobile and projects.

Take JD as my traveling companion!

Q1. Will he get through airport security?

Q2. Can I put him in backpack and carry him with laptop and tablet?

Q3. How to wrap / protect him in transit?

Q4. How to get him through customs if I go north to Canada?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Since it is something you own and will not be leaving in the country you are travelling to, customs is not an issue. TSA may take a look because of all of the wires, but that will just be an inconvenience of extra screening time. Show that it is a toy, and you should be fine.

I disagree with the removal of the battery that josh suggested. Better to have it installed than separate. If it is installed, it is just like having a LiPo or LiON in your cell phone. Not totally safe, but better than bouncing around free....

Alan is correct. Do not take the battery out of a revolution robot. We are certified to have the batteries in the robots during transport - which is why we can ship robots with batteries installed.

Chargers are key! I ALMOST forgot my robot charger and I definitely forgot my personal computer charger on this trip to Toronto haha!

I wouldn't say you need to travel with a toolkit, but it's always better to be prepared!
