FAA Registration for Drones, R/C Helicopters and Airplanes

Postby Urbish » Mon Dec 14, 2015 2:32 pm

If any of you fly anything by remote control or have bought one of these to give as a Christmas gift, take heed. They need to be registered with the FAA starting December 21. The cost is $5. They are waiving the registration fee for the first month: http://www.faa.gov/uas/registration/

There is a weight limit. I think it is anything over 0.55 pound. Which means more or less eveything. Haven't seen what the penalty is for not registering. Vern

Better shoot shovel n shut up . FAA registration means same penalty as shooting at regular
Aircraft.

Wouldn't be the first time I had an accidental discharge. I just shipped a pellet rifle back to manufacturer that would fire with the safety on.

When I was a kid we had trouble with a neighbor's doberman pinscher (aptly named "Killer") getting loose and ending up at our house to fight with our Golden Retriever and harass our horses. The cops told us we couldn't shoot the dog unless it was damaging livestock. He said if we did shoot it to make sure we spread some chicken feathers around the yard before calling the police. Never did shoot it, but our horses got in some good kicks to the ribs that sent him flying numerous times.

AMA (Academy of Model Aviation) just released a statement that this applies to most RC Aircraft. .55lbs - 55lbs.
Looks like another government intervention program.

Now I would be real impressed if you could hit a drone with one of those! :lol:
Would definitely make a good explanation of why the drone was full of buckshot though :D .

As a side note; is anyone else intrigued by the 0.55 pounds? :? There has to be a reason for that extra five hundredths and not an even half pound. The conversion pushes it to real close to a quarter of a kilogram or 250 grams. Think we're going metric here, someone nostalgic for the days of the 55 MPH national speed limit, or some other explanation. :?:

Yeah, it applies for 0.55 to 55 pounds, 1/4 to 25 kilos. I embrace the change -- my birthday is coming up and I'll only be 20 Celsius.

Only the GOVERNMENT could devise such a system. Registration is free until Feb 2016 but you have to pay by credit card and later they will credit your card for the same amount. That's 2 transactions by the Government and 2 by the credit card company to get nothing. Wonder what that costs the taxpayers?
