Mandatory DRONE registration is here as of December 21, 2015
Mandatory registration is here as of December 21, 2015 Or Not...

June, 2017 update:  The information here is out of date, The FAA recently changed their regulations for small drones and removed many registration requirements. Please see the FAA site for full details.

Well enough boneheads have caused problems so now the rest of us get to suffer...  In typical government fashion (Lazy) instead of going after and prosecuting the problem casing individuals. 

The new rule covers all unmanned aircraft weighing more than 0.55 pounds. And yes, this applies to the drone you're getting for Christmas.

The FAA said registration is required for any hobbyist drone weighing between 0.55 pounds and 55 pounds. That weight limit includes even relatively small drones.

The FAA is prepared to enforce its rule.

"Failure to register an aircraft can result in civil penalties up to $27,500," the rule states. "Criminal penalties for failure to register can include fines of up to $250,000."
