Do not place UAVs in your hold luggage. Dronebatteries should be placed in a medium sized lipo-battery pocket, as shown here in the left picture, and put into the airplane in the carrying-case. They are classified by airline companies as "dangerous goods" and the regulations that surround these cells in airplanes are very stringent because these cells have caught fire several times.
If you do not correctly package lithium-ion battery in a case such as the one shown in the above links, the carrier may confiscate it, impose a fine on you or refuse to carry it.
