I still dont get it?


Fly sUAS under Part 107
I need to register my small unmanned aircraft for recreational, commercial, governmental, or other purposes under Part 107. Each drone must be registered at a cost of $5.00 and registration is valid for a period of 3 years. Also use this option to apply for a waiver/authorization, or reporting an accident under Part 107.

Fly Model Aircraft under Section 336
I need to register my small unmanned aircraft to fly with an aero-modeling club and following all requirements of the Special Rule for Model Aircraft.

see: https://faadronezone.faa.gov/#/


SO??? 107 vs 336???

I want to fly my drone in USA for recreactional reasons .. so which do I do, as 107 says 'recreational' whereas 336 talsk about 'aero-modelling clubs'?





Which is it????

Register under "Section 336" since you're only going to be flying as a hobbyist (just for fun).

Can you tell my why 107 isn't appropriate as it says 'recreational'?

Or is it a case you can do either?

With a Part 107 registration, you can fly commercially or as a hobbyist. You of course need to have a Remote Pilot License in order to fly commercially though.

So under 107 I can still fly recreationally (without a license) but if I want to do commercial flying for film/tv etc I would need a license.

so for recreational use 336 or 107 doesnt matter?

is one free vs fee?

When I registered I got this message (in part) from https://federaldroneregistration.com/

Want to start making money with your drone or simply become an expert pilot? You’ll need to get professionally certified and take the Part 107 exam.

To register weather it's 336 or 107 it's $5. You can have your 107 cert and still fly as a hobbyist.

If your making any kind of money you need to be 107 certified. Signing up with the AMA is an extra charge
in itself.

107 is not recreational. If your going to get your 107 then yes register under there if not do the 336.

But with ever one you choose it's $5 regardless. The only difference is under 107 you pay $5 for each
drone. Under 336 $5 covers all your drones.

As msinger said. Section 336 and it costs $5 and is good for 3 years.

The cost is the same. It doesn't matter for flying recreationally, but it doesn't make sense to register under Part 107 if you're never going to fly commercially.

A Section 336 registration results in an FAA registration number that can be used on all of your drones. A Part 107 registration can only be used on the drone you registered.

If you have no plans to fly commercially right now, then register under Section 336 and re-register later under Part 107 for any drones you decide to fly commercially.

Per the FAA
