WW,

Here is a long Post from 2011 about the Traveling Q 3.5. I Think the only problem might be the legs (you can put them in your checked bag).

I get asked, "What is it?" a lot but other than that no problems.

And another thread from last year:

http://www.cloudynights.com/ubbthreads/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/5248899/page...

I had no trouble; I took the legs off, and suspect this
varies with the screener.

As a related aside, note that the TSA is currently relaxing
regs to allow small knives and "novelty" bats up to 20", so
I suspect that a lightweight aluminum telescope let will be
a non-issue. (but your mileage may vary!)
