    Default VCI and Airport security

    Has anyone here had trouble with Airport security taking thier VCI as carry on baggage. I recently get my brand new VCI a few days before going to work. When im off to work I usually only take a back pack, but now I have a new Laptop/suitcase type bag that I carry my VCI, Laptop, soundcard etc etc. I was at first considering checking this baggage in, but instead winged it.
    I went through security in Bali, Singapore, Dubai and Malta, and not once was i asked about my VCI, I mean it must look kinda strange to them, I even had a packet of arcade buttons in the bag.

    Soon i will be flying home to Indonesia from the Bahamas via America, Thus my cause for concern. Has anyone had trouble in the USA before?? I know the security measures have been stepped up again since this recent attemted attack?

    I just take my mixer out of my bag along with my laptop. That way there is no question of what was that "bomb looking thing" is lls. I actually got caught up once and missed my flight, but after taking it out before it's been gravy.

    I wouldn't worry too much about carrying thd VCI, just make sure you take it out when you put it thru the xray machine.

    i do this all the time when i fly to vegas from san diego and back for pre and after hotel parties. although it does take a while to pack everything again in my dj bag after passing the TSAs. i always have people staring at me and the dj equipment asking if i dj.

    i am forced to pull out the vci, laptop and soundcard out of the bag.
