Effective December 21, 2015, anyone who owns a small unmanned aircraft between the weight of .55lbs (250g) and 55lbs must register with the Federal Aviation Administration’s Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) registry and properly Label each aircraft before they fly outdoors. You will be subject to civil and criminal penalties if you meet the criteria to register a drone and do not register. The FAA has set the maximum punishment for flying an unregistered drone to be three years in jail or $250,000 in fines.
