How to register your drone for personal use.
The FAA announced official rules for registering drones in the United States on December 14, 2015. Registration applies to a wide range of drone sizes, between .55 lbs. and 55 lbs., which includes Solo and Site Scan. Below you’ll find a list of the FAA drone registration rules. Put simply, everyone needs to register. It costs five dollars and you can do it online. Registration officially began on December 21. New drone owners need to register before their first flight.
At a high level, the loosening of the restrictions required to fly commercially shows that drones are now safer and easier to use than ever before. The launch of 3DR’s Site Scan enterprise platform in March anticipated this democratization of access to aerial data capture and analytics, and now after passing a simple FAA knowledge test anyone can survey a construction site or measure a stockpile with the push of a few buttons in Site Scan.
