Hi all,

I take the airplane in less than 3 hours. I must bring an arduino starter kit.
I don't have cargo luggage, I must take it in cabin.

=> Is there any forbidden component in the starter kit ????

I will be very disapointed if the security guy throw me some components !!

Thanks ;-)

Do you have the list of forbidden items?

I would be surprised if there is a problem but the only way to get an official answer is to ask the airport security folks.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

If it has any big seven segment displays connected, take them off now.

Or make sure the countdown won't expire until long after the flight lands :)

Yes, I would agree, let them know what you have before they discover it and make the wrong assumptions.
I will watch the NBC news tonight to see if they did...

;-) :-D Sure , I must avoid the countdown joke :-D

OK, I test it. To be less suspicious, I put the kit out of my luggage, with my PC.
The X-ray guy observe it for a while, take it when it come out of the machine, have a look at me, gave a faint smile, and finally release it.

Arduino + Starter Kit are suitable for Cabin.

Hi,
Whats to stop you going to aircraft toilet and assembling the kit?
How much C4 can you hide in a small deodorant can?
Use Laptop USB to power.

Mac (MacGiver) would have thought of something.

Tom... :)

I gotta quit responding before I read the whole thread!

The tech guy in charge spotted another tech guy. Problem solved. Only slightly dangerous.  :smiley-twist:

If you don't look middle eastern you are probably fine.... otherwise it's probably best to leave it a home.

Be sure to remove all red and blue wires - that'll have 'em confused for hours.

From what I think I've read, a cheap Casio watch is the sure sign!

One third of Muslims are white. It's not a race, it's a religion with a violent radical fringe which is not exactly unique is it? Long history shows that good and bad aren't birth traits.

I remember when IRA terrorism was the regular thing. The Italians I knew still hadn't lived down the Mafia stigma.

The divisionist politicians that stir up group hatred for power are sick asshats that always make thing worse, then blame their targets for the problem. I'd use an ! there but this crap is just too f__king old except for the new crop of idiots who haven't learned and of course the old idiots who never learned better.
