Which Drones Need To Be Registered?

Updated: Jan 7, 2021

All mini drones must be registered, weighing more than 0.55 pounds, and less than 55 pounds and are flown solely under the Exception for Recreational Flyers. Drones registered under part 107 are flown for recreational purposes as under part 107. Drones registered under the Exception for Recreational Flyers can't be flown for Part 107 operations. When registering your drone, you must choose to register either under section 107 or the Exception for Recreational Flyers.

For most countries, your need for a drone license depends on why you're flying. In the U.S, if you'll be paid to fly or you will be otherwise compensated for any aspect of the flight, including selling your drone photos or uploading your drone videos to YouTube with the Monetization tool turned on, you represent the Part 107 regulations. You'll need a FPV drone license; we call it the Part 107 Certificate. If you're legitimately flying for fun, no permit is currently required in the U.S.

In addition to the FAA rules, remember that National Parks have banned the utilization of mini drones within their confines. It's a shame because aerial footage of gorgeous locations could be a compelling reason to have a FPV drone, but on the opposite hand, some places should be freed from technological distractions.

Registration criteria

· Age must be greater than 13 years

· U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident

· For foreign operators, the FAA will consider the license gave to be a recognition of ownership rather than a license of U.S. aircraft registration

Information to register

· Email

· Credit or debit card

· Residential address and mailing address, if different from physical.

· Make and model of your mini drone or FPV drone.

Registration fees

· Part 107 registration costs 5 dollars per drone and is valid for three years.

· The Exception for Recreational Flyers registration costs 5 dollars and is valid for three years. The license number you receive is to be used on all drones you own and intend to use for recreational flying only.

· Once registered, drone registration can't be transferred between the kinds (part 107 or the Exception for Recreational Flyers) without a further 5-dollar fee.

Where to register

Register your drone at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
