Two months ago, I had no problem getting my Arrow onto a plane.  I simply disassembled part of it and put the pieces inside my suitcase.  When my luggage was scanned, I was queried about it and I explained what it was for.  No further questions were asked.

Getting all my radio gear through the security check was relatively easy.  By comparison, I always had to take my laptop out and have it examined.
