Default Travel with Lipo's ?????

I'll be traveling by airplane to a big race soon and was wondering if anyone has been taking there Lipo's with them on the airplane as carry-on or via checked baggage with there RC stuff and getting flack from the airline?

I know your technically not suppose to take RC Lipo's on a airplane but there no different than a cell phone, DVD, or Laptop Lipo's.

Thanks,

Basically - Li-Po batteries go on with you in carry-on.

Thanks for the info. I guess I'll carry on my lipo's as they are below the 300Wh max requirement.
