Hello, I have some info on the drone registration. All drones that are made by DJI are above .55lbs and below 55lbs., meaning that it must be registered. It is free to register a drone before January 20, 2016. After that, it is a $5 registration fee. Get it registered with the FAA through this link: https://registermyuas.faa.gov/register

FYI all the want is your name and address. They want no information about the drone your flying. They number they provide you is for all flying RC gear if it meets the requirements to need the number attached

Apparently, they want more than that, like a credit card.  Not happening.

Yeah. Just remember to replace it after 3 years. If you do it on the same day, then it will be free also.

All these idiots blinded over a $5 refund.


Actually, it's all of these idiots that "don't" register.  Granted, there's probably not enough resource to enforce it for a while (or at all), but, that's not the point.  I guess all of the "smart" people will wait for the first few fines to do theirs. :-)

I saw this notice regarding registration:

" PSA: The AMA recommends holding off on model aircraft registration in the US until legal challenges are resolved.

There's no need for these words.  After all, we are all here for the hobby, to learn and be informed, right? Have fun BUT more importantly, be safe!

1) Without any incidents; let's just say I am just leisurely flying my drone at a park and someone randomly ask for my registration.  Guess what, I would have mine so I am covered...no fine.  The non-registered people will either receive a warning or citation (fine) of some sort once this is fully in effect.  It's just that simple.      

2) On your second point - your thought process is if you are registered and something happens, like a runaway that has created an accident or even killing someone...why register for because it would then be documented as your drone and you are now accountable for what happened?  Geez - what a terrible concept?!?  Accountable for your actions.

If someone randomly asks for my registration, I'm not going to give it to them. It would seem only the FAA can ask for that. I don't see them having a large enforcement division roaming the country looking for unregistered drones. Otherwise I will tell you it's none of your business  to see my registration.

The same chuckleheads that brought us to the requirement of registering.  There will be idiots out there spying on the girls in their bikinis or the grumpy old bastard that thinks your either spying on him or just being a public nuisance.

Sure, there isn't a requirement to show your registration to everyone.  But, should you show them and talk the drone hobby up, you might take a hater and turn them into a "Gotta have that".  Like with any hobby, you give a bad attitude and now its "Those" people that we'll be referred to.  

WE can either help or harm the hobby by our actions and attitude.

Did you not state "Screw the FAA and screw you. Do you think youre immune to any punishment because you registered?"

Not picking on you, but its crappy attitudes and negligent behavior that brought us to the point that the FAA poked our government for mandatory registration.

I can talk up the hobby and often do. People are impressed on seeing what the Phantom can do and also what it cannot. I don't need to whip out a registration number to make any kind of impression on them.

Hence my stance, why register at all then.

I know. I see where you are going with this and I understand. I guess I just fall in the camp of registering since it is required just like my vehicles. I could drive my car around without a registration or insurance rolling the dice whether I would get caught or not, but I don't. Call me a lemming.

You see the problem is, that eventually there WILL be an FAA drone enforcement division.  Why?  Beca ...

In some sense, I am OK with that. Already since Christmas the increase in posts and questions by people doing idiotic things or those who refuse to learn even the smallest thing about these aircraft has already increased dramatically on this forum. So, it follows that we are set up to see a lot of crazy irresponsible occurrences once the weather warms up. It might be helpful to have someone out there weeding out the stupid. Bloated bureaucracy and all that comes with it.

You do know that the shooter in this case was thrown out by a judge even though the on board video and the DJI flight records showed the drone was close to 300 in elevation. http://www.wdrb.com/story/303541 ... who-shot-down-drone

I'm not as vocal as Bryan, but registration isn't going to do anything to improve safety.

I've been here since the advent of the P3. There have been lots of folks flying higher than 400 feet as well as people not flying within visual restrictions.

There was a case in Hawaii where a person flying a DJI product withing 50-100 yards of the presidents motorcade. He wasn't charged. I can wager, he didn't bother to look for temporary flight restrictions. The FAA published the restrictions before December 16th, 2015. I'm not a Obama fan, but I'm not stupid enough to fly in an area where I know the president is going to be.

You can't legislate common sense. Registration isn't the answer.

DJI can thru the DJI GO app, require you to sign off that you acknowledge flight safety before every flight. Geo fencing while not perfect can restrict the movement of new owners aircraft.
