Faa Drone Regulations For Toy Drones

Are there FAA drone regulations for toy drones? Do I have to register my toy drone?

The FAA has rules and regulations for drone flights outdoors. And while you are not required to register these tiny toy drones, you are required to follow some FAA guidelines. Just because it is a tiny drone does not mean you can ignore the FAA laws.

    Do I have to get a remote pilot license to fly a drone recreational that is under 250 grams?

    Really informative show. I haven’t flown in years and I am looking at getting back into the hobby. Thanks for the info!! New subscriber.

    I didnt know toys could go high enough to interfere with aircraft? Above the trees is too high for them anyways, too small to see up there and sudden wind gusts. Hmm

    I am also concerned about the new FAA 2018 reauthorization act. However, the section dealing with recreational UAS states:
    FYI this is in the 2018 FAA Reauthorization act
    "When issuing rules or regulations for the operation of UAS under this section, the Administrator SHALL NOT NOT—
    (1) require the pilot or operator of the UAS to obtain or hold an airman certificate;
    (2) require a practical flight examination, medical examination, or the completion of a flight training program;
    (3) limit such UAS operations to pre-designated fixed locations or uncontrolled airspace; or
    (4) require airworthiness certification of any UAS operated pursuant to this section.

    Now, with that written, it does not mean that the FAA could not abuse or cause difficulties for recreational drone pilots. The FAA is a government agency which tends to drag its feet, while technology is moves at a fast pace. Government is always doing catch up with technology. My experience is that the government is always behind about 10-30 years when making policies in regards to techology.

    What I am hoping is that the FAA will use the Sec 338 of the act to force other federal agencies to allow drone flights. In 2014 the National Park Service did an interim (temporary) policy that banned all drones being launched or landed in parks. The BLM and Forest Service have similar policies, but not as restrictive (or illogical) as the National Park Service. We are also now seeing local governments banning drones.. Sec 338 of the act states:

    SEC. 338. STUDY ON ROLES OF GOVERNMENTS RELATING TO LOW-ALTITUDE OPERATION OF SMALL UNMANNED AIRCRAFT.
    (a) In General.—Not later than 60 days after the date of enactment of this Act, the Inspector General of the Department of Transportation shall initiate a study on—

    (1) the regulation and oversight of the low-altitude operations of small unmanned aircraft and small unmanned aircraft systems; and

    (2) the appropriate roles and responsibilities of Federal, State, local, and Tribal governments in regulating and overseeing the operations of small unmanned aircraft in airspace 400 feet above ground level and below.

    Again,section 338 states that the FAA will initiate a study. I expect that study to be done by the year 2050, when we all have jet packs, we can visit the national parks with a holodeck or can travel via transporters to Mars. Government is slow.

    Does this "Drone Policy" hold any legal weight in the USA?

  13. Rick Racine on April 23, 2021 at 2:14 am

    thats not true if its under 250 grams you dont, please educate yourself

  14. nmsidewinder on April 23, 2021 at 2:17 am

    Jay you make great videos, however every time I watch one like this one you just made, it makes my blood boil.
    The FAA (greedy politicians and businesses that plan in the future to use our drone airspace " for commercial use ) is pretty much ruining if for the hobbyist drone pilots. Hoops and more hoops to jump though. It seems they won’t stop until we are all grounded or forced to fly either illegally or indoors.
    more than .55 lb you have to register the drone with the " Papers please " government really rubs me the wrong way. But I digress … lol
    Thanks for sharing Amigo
    God Bless :o)

    Great video and good info.

  16. K Arthur on April 23, 2021 at 2:20 am

    Jay, do these rules apply to fixed wing model aircraft as well! They must be registered if over the weight requirement?

  17. Vegard Pedersen on April 23, 2021 at 2:22 am

    That drone is so small! I wonder how good the camera is on that drone 😁

  18. Joshua Verwers on April 23, 2021 at 2:24 am

    Haha! Arkansas mosquito!?!? 😉

  19. Galveston Co. R/C Enthusiast on April 23, 2021 at 2:27 am

  20. quantumphaser on April 23, 2021 at 2:31 am

    Won’t be long before RC Cars have to have tags and insurance.

    😁

  21. FlyGuy Cinematic on April 23, 2021 at 2:32 am

    Thanks very helpful information

  22. Flying Buzzard on April 23, 2021 at 2:36 am

    Airmap is wrong in my area……I am 10 + miles from airport…App says 5 mile radius is a few thousand feet from my flying field….NO it is not it is almost 5+ miles away…….and btw the House and Senate just passed the 2018 FAA Reauthorization bill…which gives the FAA a total blanket mandate to do whatever it pleases whenever it pleases and gave them the power to enforce it with your local Police Dept…and also can if THEY DEEM you may have did something wrong ( does not matter if you did or not ) they can come in and search and seize everything you have RC related…. does not matter if you are a hobbyists or a business…all it takes is a claim….the FAA is clueless about manned aircraft issues and you think they can and will do what is right in this hobby ? Please….read the wording, it absolutely takes away our 4th Amendment rights….and how many of us has Millions to fight them in court ???

  23. Richard C on April 23, 2021 at 2:38 am

    By the way the official government web site about the act is at https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/4/text#toc-H67D2DBE650AA45E5924CB8D12CE456E3

    Go to Section 331 to 349 deal with UAS (drones)

  24. A F on April 23, 2021 at 2:38 am

    Straight to the point. Good job man. Hope the new flyers learn from this.

  25. brickyard43 on April 23, 2021 at 2:39 am

    It seems silly but makes sense. I couldnt fly that small thing more than 5 feet away. I’d never see it.
