    Any drones heavier than 0.55 pounds must be registered. Proof of registration (i.e., certificate) will be required to be in the operator's possession when flying/operating drone.

    Registration begins December 21, 2015.

    Agreed Runnah. I mean, we know how dangerous it is and what a hazard to your health. It impacts everyone around you and yet we do nothing to stop the eating of bacon!! When we will outlaw that delicious smell?

    Letting an 11 year old fly a drone, big enough to hurt people, by himself should be a felony. A pencil dropped from 395 feet can kill somebody not to mention a flailing or dead drone. If you don't have the five bucks we can take up a collection and get a a prescription that will negate the effect of the dumb pills.

    I dunno. I've seen some 11-year-olds that are much more mature than some 30YOs.

    If you don't feel like giving in to the government, it'll only cost you a touch over $27,000!

    My dad picked up a DJI phantom last year, and that thing is a blast. I wouldn't think twice before allowing an 11 year old to fly it. Could it do some damage falling from several hundred feet? Sure it could. But lets me real. A 16 year old driving a car is more dangerous than an 11 year old flying a drone.
