PSA: Trump signs law forcing toy drone users for FAA registration. Please read the article below for more details.

http://thehill.com/policy/transpo...-with-govt

I guess the rule was always there but not strictly enforced, this might change things for people buying more and more drones, especially now that drone makers like DJI discounting the DJI spark, etc.
If you are not aware here are the existing FAA rules.

So he's just enforcing the law already in place. A good law to enact judging by the amount of problems drones can cause. You can track down the idiot that flies his drone into people/buildings/etc.

Is it required for all drones or just the ones weigh above 0.5lbs?

I hope it goes by the existing regulation of 0.55 lbs or else for every cheap drone you have to pay 5$ fee per year...

when I registered mine last year, it said that the registration covers any / all drones that I fly. So even if I have 100 drones you just pay the one time fee, you dont pay "per drone".

Good to hear Trump is keeping America safe from mass dronings. I suppose I better be a good comrade and register my dangerous flying toy...

2020 can't come soon enough.

Well better than banning them, since DJI allegedly working with the Ginese government
