FAA’s registration program will apply to more than drones
#1
If Santa puts an expensive drone under the Christmas tree, he may attach a note saying that it must be registered with the Federal Aviation Administration before it can soar outdoors.

More than 500,000 drones are expected to be given as gifts this holiday season. Only the heavier models weighing more than a half-pound fully loaded must be registered with the government.

But longtime hobbyists who fly radio-controlled planes and helicopters that meet the FAA weight threshold for registration are also affected. And many of them don’t like it.
