I bought my OW in LA in June and got back to my country without any issues.. I knew TSA would confiscate my board so I had to disassemble it and separate it in three different bags. The wheel and tire in one bag, rails and controller in other bag, battery pack in hand luggage. I took care to wrap the battery in a sealed plastic bag as requested by the airliner. I covered the OW logo with duck tape and flattened the tire (no pressured devices allowed in bags). Back at home, I opened the bag with the wheel, there was a TSA inspection note inside, they checked my bag but did not confiscate anything.
It's really a pain in the ass to disassemble the board, I'll never do it again.
I'm hoping for a solution from FM .. OWing is a must when visiting other countries.. we really need green passes in airplanes
I'm so jealous I didn't think of this. I ended up paying around $320 for shipping and $400 in import fees/customs even though I had owned and rode the board for 8 months before shipping it here after I moved (shouldn't have had to pay). They basically confiscated it at the border and told me to either pay or hire a lawyer. for $720 I happily would have taken the time to disassemble it had I thought of that.
