FAA Says Drone Registration Will Be Kept Simple
FAA UAV Regulations Update: The US government task force in charge of regulating small UAV’s will release plans later this week for drone registration in the United States.
Meanwhile, 3rd party websites are already advertising they will register your hobby drone on your behalf for $25 fee.
In response, the FAA cautions drone owners about using 3rd party drone registration companies, because the process will be no more difficult than registering any other product.

The government says requirements to register drones will be simple enough that owners will not need to pay a “drone registration” company to do it for them. Some websites are advertising that they will register a drone for a $25 fee. The Federal Aviation Administration said on Monday that drone owners should “think twice” before using a registration company, since the process will be no more difficult than registering any other product. The government plans to require that most owners register drones so that they can be identified if they crash or are caught flying where they should not. A government task force is expected to release plans this week on registration.
