I think I will, just for traveling outside of the country incase that place needs you to have your information on your drone, but what are your thoughts on this whole thing about being able to get your money back, and are you going to do it or not do it and why?

I am guessing it won't be long until they relegislate drone registration in the US anyway.

It is what it is... although it is not.. worth the hassle to get back $5.00 for me.

Given my hourly rate It'll cost me more to have it removed that it's worth. Plus, might come in handy should I lose it and some good samaritan turns it in.

It's just $5.  If it was something like $100 USD or more, then it would merit more than a moment's thought. So, no, it's not worth the effort, so I'm not going to see how to get my money back.

Since my Mavic is registered as commercial, I plan to register the Spark as commercial as well, just in case I ever need a back-up. Five bucks isn't enough to make any difference on the budget.

Yes, I'm keeping my registration and even keeping my number on the drone.  Keeps me honest ;-)  No need for $5 back after spending $1300 to get this thing...

As someone no from the US, but due to travel there soon for a month, has something changed with the law? Am i no longer required to register my drone before i go?

Thanks

you no longer have to register in the U.S. for recreational purposes.

No,  I thought the consumer registration was senseless from the start.

I am keeping it.  If the drone became lost, I have the registration # for someone to back track via FAA to me, although I also have my cell phone # and name on it as well.  Also if someone comes up to challenge me about flying, I can point to my registration and the FAA rules that I follow.  Helps forestall someone agitating for police action or new local rules.

For recreational (hobby) use, no.  However for professional use, you have to register, take test etc.

For $5 it's not worth my time plus registration paperwork like this seems to impress bureaucrats here and abroad.

I got my registration during the free period before you had to pay.  I wouldn't bother to ask for $5 back even if I had paid.  I'm keeping mine.  I like the number & it looks cool on the drones!

I'm already registered and I'm not going to bother applying for a refund.  It's good for 3 years so I'll decide what to do once my current registration expires.  Chances are the regulations will change by then anyway.

Yes, because in due time, the FAA will find a way to charge recreational users again.

Its not worth my effort to recuperate $5, when I know they'll find a way to get it back again in the future.
