Flying with DLP projector - Should this be checked in or carry in in hand lugguage?


Novice Member
Hello Friends,
I am planning to travel to India (kolkata) with Optoma UHD30 DLP projector from London in Feb,2021. Looking for recommendations who might hv recently flown in international flight with a DLP projector from US or UK.
Can anyone please confirm whether it can be carried in as cabin luggage (fits within allowed dimesion & weight limit) or needs to be mandatorily checked in, since it got mercury based lamps. Also if it's packed along with the original retail packing do you think it would a wise choice to put inside the checked in luggage or might this get damaged in transit. I am bit hesitant to carry in the cabin luggage as not sure abt current airlines/airport restrictions about carrying a Projector. Anyone can share any recent exp plz?
