This is getting out of hand…more government regulations on drones?!
Drone users can be fined nearly $30,000 for failing to register with the government, according to rules that can even apply to toy drones.
Beginning Feb. 19, all owners of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)—commonly known as drones—must be registered with the Federal Aviation Authority, if they own any drone weighing between 0.55 and 55 pounds. Individuals must pay a $5 fee to register, plus a $5 renewal fee every three years.
