    This story came out today. Article doesn't say whether this will be new or existing drones. The other thing I wonder is what difference will this make, and who does it really benefit? I would be more for licensing pilots rather than craft. Maybe just a way to collect more taxes.

    U.S. Will Require Drones to Be Registered

    It will be interesting to see the outcome of this plan.

    PS - be sure to post in the correct area, I moved this to "news" for you. ;)

    Sorry, I thought the buttons at the top were the only forums.

    The layout here is different from most forums but once you get the hang of it you will like it better.

    This registration says I'm legal. I feel much more confident flying anywhere now according to FAA rules. It's a good thing.

    Nothing more than a way to keep an honest man honest, do they actually think a terrorist is going to register a drone then send it some where with a pound of c4 attached?

    I have no problem registering my drone what so ever.
