This just popped up today (I think). It's a new FAA regulation that, if I'm reading it correctly requires registration of your drone even if it's used as 'model aircraft' and weighs more than .55 pounds.

Thanks for the info, Marko.

I just updated the firmware on my Phantom 2, and I noticed some text that prohibited flying within a certain distance from the Emperor of Japan's residence. It may be automatically buffered by the software.

I had a blast a few days ago, doing a video flight in my niece's husband's corporate jet hangar. Filming 3 jets from all angles. Then I made some video clips for him to put in a presentation.

As I understand the reg, YOU need to register as a drone pilot, then mark your drone. You don't register each drone.

Was enjoying the quiet afternoon, watching a bowl game, tending the bbq for dinner and start to hear an annoying whining noise from the back yard.


Neighbors got a drone....
