Does Your New Drone Need to be Registered?

Thousands of people across the US are getting a drone for Christmas. While you are probably eager to go outside and get your drone up in the air, don’t forget about the law.

Regulations from the FAA state that if your drone is over 0.55 pounds (250 grams) it needs to be registered. All you have to do is go to the FAA website, create an account and then pay a $5 fee. It is easy and straight forward. If you operate your drone without registering, it could result in a fine.

Also, before you fly check to see if there are any flight restrictions in your local area as many cities have created laws that prohibit drone operations in some areas.
