Will Flipper make it past TSA?

I was wondering if flipper would make it past airport security with all its infared and radio parts

Honestly, it depends on whether you are profiled as suspicious (as does much in encounters with security personnel).

On the plus side, with their official configuration / firmware, Flipper is a legal, FCC approved device. On the other hand, once security takes an interest in you, anything non-standard (weirder than your average business laptop) can arouse further suspicion.

That said, if you dress like anodyne corporate middle management and have it in a laptop case with your other chargers and cables, it may never get a second glance.

We’ve heard no reports of people having problems with TSA because of their flippers, and a lot of reports of people having no problems at all while flying with their flippers
