Drone registration is now the new rule in the United States. With the proliferation of drones and UAV’s the government and FAA have finally addressed the growing problem with these aircraft endangering person and property and entering into restricted airspace. The problems, for the most part, have been caused by hobbyists and not by professionals. The new future rules seem to be leaning toward some kind of registration of UAV’s although at this point no one knows exactly what will be involved. While I applaud the idea, I can’t help but be concerned that the government, being the government, will over complicate the process to the ultimate and make it nearly impossible to accomplish registration. Registration will, at least, give the authorities the ability to find the people who are being irresponsible and creating the problems. Hopefully something good will come of this.
I suggest going about 8 minutes into the video because the first part of it is nothing but a view of an empty podium.
