    FAA announces drone owners must register by February 19th, 2016

    Regulation of drones in the hands of civilian pilots took a big step forward today. The Federal Aviation Administration announced that all units weighing between 0.55 pounds and 50 pounds must be registered by February 19th, 2016. Anyone caught flying without proper registration after that date could face stiff penalties. The FAA says civil penalties include a fine of up to $27,500. Criminal penalties include a fine of up to $250,000 and up to three years in jail.

    The registration will usually include a $5 fee, but the FAA is waiving that for the first 30 days in an effort to encourage participation. It notes that "registrants will need to provide their name, home address and e-mail address. Upon completion of the registration process, the web application will generate a Certificate of Aircraft Registration/Proof of Ownership that will include a unique identification number for the UAS owner, which must be marked on the aircraft." Time to break out those decal packs.

    The unit that is in the picture is a Yuneec 4k, I have that drone. I have gone into the clouds with it. In fact I flew it 3 nights ago and hit 1500 ft up. Units that can go above 500 ft IMO something should be done. I do not think that there should be a charge for this. Figures the Government had to make on it. I do not think it is fair that a person buying a $200 drone should have to register. Those drones are not made to go that high. They should include a free registration card inside the box with high end brands like, DJI, Walkera, Blade, Yuneec, Ehang Ghost,.............

    I wonder what will happen to a 14 year old that does not register?

    I am happy that all my flying toys are too small to require registration. Even my biggest helicopter is too light to need it.
    Plus, I can't fly worth a darned, so don't often take them out.
    For some reason, my brain can't figure out that when my helicopter is flying away, the joystick turned to the right makes it go right, but when it is coming back, turning the joystick to the right makes it go to the left. Crash. End of flight.

    What is funny is that I waited so long to learn on the little ones that when I got to fly the big boy toys it was so simple. They are easyier to fly than the little guys. The Yuneec 4k is my favorite drone

    Impressive! It is amazing what technology can do for us and we can see it at home on our phone or on a big screen.

    That's what I call thinking outside of the box. I guess if you had a drone with the lifting capacity you could even grab a shark.
