Drone Registrations Already Hit 45,000

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) drone registry went online on last Monday. As the agency announced this morning, more than 45,000 people have now used the online service to register their drones. If you own a drone (or really any model aircraft) that weighs between 0.55 pounds and 55 pounds (including payloads like cameras), you now have to register with the FAA. Registration will be free until January 21. After that, it’ll cost $5. Registrations are valid for three years.
