Aircraft weighing over .55 lbs (just over 2 sticks of butter) must have a compliant label for identification and carry a Certificate of Registration (Flight ID). The Autel Kestrel drone has a max takeoff weight of 31 lbs and therefore must be registered. We will assist you with your FAA registration filing, make compliant labels and Fight ID card.
