    So you’re saying hobbyist still have to register their drones. Im just a viewer, but a lot of other sources would say youre not required to register. 🤔

    You can register multiple drones using Part 48 for commercial use. When you log in to the FAA registration site it will ask you if it is for Commercial or Hobby Use. Pick non Hobby use and you will registry multiple aircraft. I have registered over 15 aircraft so far. I have registered using the old Part 47 and the online is way easier. Also looks like the Court threw out registratoin for Hobby but won’t effect Part 48 for commercial use.
