    I think I'll duck tape my R4i clone (the edge with the sdmicro card) and place a fake ds label on it. The scanners detect duck tape I bet, so that bro ably won't work.

    Hmm... Maybe I'll just put it in a case with my DS games and hope no one suspects... Yes, I think I'll do that.

    Oh yeah, give me foolproof ways of bringing my R4i on a plane.

    umm i dont think they care if you bring a flashcart onto a plane. I took mine with me several times, and never had a problem.

    Why would you hide your flashcart?

    It's not a fucking weapon that can kill people .___.

    lmfao they won't bother you about it lol.... Just don't ask them: "Is it ok for me to bring my illegal game copying/piracy device on the plane?" And you'll be fine.

    No. Those flight attendees will shoot you on sight if they see a flashcart. No joke. Also, the flight guards will forever ban you from riding on the plane again.
    /sarcasm
    No, it's okay folks. You can bring your flashcart wherever you like. People play those things on planes on all the time.

    Did you know it was possible to make a makeshift bomb using the battery from a laptop? (Or something along the lines of-)
    Yet people are allowed to bring their laptops with them.

    You can even kill people with a toothbrush.........

    If you're going to be picky then nothing should be allowed on a plane since it can be fashioned into a weapon very quickly

    Interesting levels of paranoia here.

    Get a game holder that holds carts, put it in with carts, and think nothing of it. What, you think Nintendo has agents strip searching people at airports? I'd be blown away to discover air port security would even know what a fashcart was when mixed together with anything else. If you are that desperate, just place a common white label sticker on it, make a cute drawing and make it look like yet another fucking Puppy love little kid game.

    I mentioned a laptop battery because he was talking about electronics.

    A bomb made out of an old laptop battery is a weapon.
    A toothbrush can be used as a weapon.

    Weapons aren't allowed on a plane.

    It looks very similar to me.

    Our own limbs are weapons, too.

    The Human person is a weapon so they should not be aloud on planes therefore defeating the purpose.

    Exactly.

    So if we're going to be picky about what goes along on a plane it would be pretty much nothing.

    OP has nothing to worry about.

    A flashcard IS NOT a bloody weapon so it IS ALLOWED on a plane.

    A bomb is natively a weapon. A toothbrush isn't. The destructiveness, accessibility, and the plausibility for it to be used as a weapon is way different.

    Unless it's a detonable toothbrush! O-O

    If you argue that a toothbrush can cause harm, I can argue that I could choke somebody with a flashcart.

    But it could be a weapon, if we shoved it down someone's throat or something.

    God, Flashcarts are allowed and will go through even Japanese customs with no problems.
    I speak from experience.
