    If I have registered my drone under recreational and I have my Part 107 test in a few days, can I go back and register my drone as commercial?

  2. Paul Gordon on June 13, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Once again your video are great.
    Very informative.. I just got scammed… For the next several days I will be watching your videos and I won’t do anything until I see your videos thank you 👍👍👍

    Mandates are not laws and mandates require compliance. Only slaves comply with fraud while people like you try and make a buck. You’re a fraud!

  4. David T on June 13, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Great Video! But still got 2 Questions on registration, does the controller also needs to be registered? Also, where to find the Remote ID for DJI mini 2? Thank you!

  5. Jonathan Miles on June 13, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    I don’t see nothing on this screen what am I doing wrong

  6. Gary Weldon on June 13, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    I have a X7 Ranger, (EXO) where do I find the serial number for it?

  7. CrazyNoodles on June 13, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Your videos truly helped me navigate through all these policies. Thank you so much!

  8. Mark Briley on June 13, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Do I have to register a regular RC airplane with the government?

  9. David L Hotaling on June 13, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    I fly the drone for fun so which register should I choose?

  12. Vlad Firtich on June 13, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    Thank you very much for helpful info and for free stickers! I really appreciate it.

  13. Enrique Briceno on June 13, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    i bought a 1.5 pounds cheap drone, do i need to register it? i don’t have a serial number also

  14. Tech Systems on June 13, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    Hi Greg, always my source of information regarding drones and regulations. I have a question for you, my wife bought a dji Mavic air 2 last Christmas and she registered it as a recreational but it’s been sitting there for more than 7 month and I would like to get in to the hobby as a recreational as well. Do I need to register it again under my name? thanks in advance

  15. Mubasshir Khan on June 13, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    Hi! How can I register my homebuilt planes? I do not know the UAS manufacturer, serial number etc.

  16. Gunner Zane on June 13, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    Great channel. Thanks

  17. fatcat_wc on June 13, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    Anyone know how to find the serial # for the JJRC X17? Thanks

  18. Julio Ayala on June 13, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    Hi Craig,
    I recently lost my registered drone (did not recover it). Do I have to notify the FAA so that the registered number is deleted?

  19. Grant Street Productions on June 13, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    how do you re-register the drone?

  20. Wild Nature Media on June 13, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    Fantastic video. Thank you!

  21. Mark Nauta on June 13, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    Very helpful great video!!!!!

  22. jakthebomb on June 13, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Don’t have to register a firearm, but have to register a toy, makes total sense to me.

  23. cmgsoon on June 13, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    That was very helpful information. Thank you.

  24. Jorge Castorena on June 13, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Very helpful thank you

  25. Mirror on June 13, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Thanks a lot… I registered my drone after following your instructions. It’s make easy.

  26. Arturo Martinez on June 13, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    Thank you

  27. 2Bluzin on June 13, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    After watching your video, I dont understand which serial to enter. My Mini 2 app does not match your Mavic version. I has both a Aircraft Serial and a Flight Controller Serial number in the general setting, you mentioned both at one point in this video. Which one should I enter?

  28. Xen on June 13, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    Hey so I understand everything other than how to find your serial number in the apps. I fly fpv. Can I find mine in betaflight?

  29. mguiulfo on June 13, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    Super informative, but in some States like Georgia (USA) require you to register your drone even when your drone weights less then 250 gr and is for Recreational purposes

  30. Vision 2030K on June 13, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    Thankfully for making everything easy for us

  31. MARYO LIONHEART on June 13, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    Too bad, i am in Romania, so i guess you cant send me stickers here 🙁

  32. Jesus Heras on June 13, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    Thank you so much for all the information!

  33. Thomas M on June 13, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    Great video. Thanks!! Yesterday, I purchased a DJI Air 2S. I plan to register my drone under the Exception for Recreational Flyers. Later, when I take the Part 107, can I register my 2S under Part 107?

  34. Han Nguyen-USA on June 13, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    I love everything that you guys do. Thank you so much!!

  35. Martin St.Andrew on June 13, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    REAL NICE SETUP WITH THE VIDEOS AND EVERYTHING

  36. Rich Boerbon on June 13, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Questions: Does your drone spotter need to be certified also? What’s the renewal fee and process after the two years?

  37. Alejandro Gonzalez on June 13, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Can i just write the registration code on drone with a sharpie

  38. Dronieboy on June 13, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    If I have 5 drones do I have to register every single drone?

  39. AndyVampir Vờ lóc ở Canada on June 13, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    so sad. I am in Canada so I couldn’t have the sticker

  40. Donald Jackson on June 13, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    Hi Greg, I have total different question for you. I am having issue to register my smart controller. It keep asking ver. Code and I keep putting it in the letters and number it show me and it will not except it. What do? Also, what are the two back buttons do behind the controller? Thanks

  41. Reel Fit on June 13, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    Just bought a Mini2 drone and was confused as hell about registration requirements. Your videos are a great help to us this newbie. Got registered done in two days! Really enjoy your videos! Thanks!

    How do you get serial number for a racing drone. Tbanks

  48. Ali Saad Ali on June 13, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    I have DJI mini 2 and I want to use it for commercial use do I need to do the 107 exam ?

  49. Don Davidson on June 13, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    WHERE DO I GO TO STUDY FOR USC 44809 ON YOUR SITE.

  50. G-daddy on June 13, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    If your drone is 249g’s with a standard size battery and you use a larger battery on the same drone but it was originally unregistered because it weighed less that 250g but now it does weight more, do you have to register the drone now?
