They want to steal money from you if you don’t follow their rules. This is not an act of congress, this is an un-elected bureaucracy creating law. Their faq says exactly what this un-elected bureaucracy will do to you:
“The FAA may assess civil penalties up to $27,500. Criminal penalties include fines of up to $250,000 and/or imprisonment for up to three years.”
“Federal law requires owners to pay $5 to register their aircraft. However, registration is free for the first 30 days to encourage speedy registration of UAS. During the first 30 days, you must pay $5 with a credit card and a $5 credit will appear shortly afterwards.”
“All owners of small UAS weighing more than 250 grams (0.55 lbs.) and less than 55 lbs. must register using this new system”
The “Modernization and Reform Act of 2012” says,
“The Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration may not promulgate any rule or regulation regarding a model aircraft, or an aircraft being developed as a model aircraft”
So congress, literally, passed a law saying the FAA couldn’t regulate hobby drones and the FAA is doing exactly that – in violation of a congressional act!
Finally, All registrants NAMES and ADDRESSES will be publicly available. Thieves could simply look up your name and address and know you had at least a full-sized drone to steal. Do you think they will register your drone after they steal it? Of course not.
And shouldn’t drones be counted under the 2nd Amendment, it is a commonly used military armament which is commonly used by civilians?
I guess if the FAA doesn’t have to comply with the law, then I don’t.
I know what I would do, Don’t Comply!
P.S. How much you want to bet the police don’t have to pay a registration fee?

If you were to search dun & bradstreet or manta dot com for the Federal Aviation Administration, you would find that they are a PRIVATE FOR PROFIT CORPORATION! In fact, you can search any of your favorite government entity and with a little bit of effort, you will ultimately discover that the entire government, is nothing more than private for profit corporations!!
It’s true,.. all of it!! FBI, cia, nsa, dhs, supreme court, congress, senate, any alphabet agency you can think of, states, counties, cities, courts.. ALL OF THEM!
Good luck FAA. A lot of military members have drones for personal, hobbyist use. Come try to collect a fee or put us in prison. Dare ya.
