0:00 – Intro
0:23 – Intro 2
0:39 – New Law and Penalties
1:54 – Registration

If I left anything out or made an incorrect statement kindly let me know.

Thank you CAAS for clarifying my concerns over the phone (the officer was super polite, friendly and informative)

Drone Flown : DJI Mavic Pro 2

Correction: This video emphasizes drones, however, any remote controlled hobby aircraft is also applicable for the registration (Model Helicopters, planes etc)

Check out my other videos as well and please sub and like (costs you nothing)

Note: Do check the CAAS Website for the latest news and schedules of major events before flying your drone

LATEST: I mentioned the requirement for a “UAV Pilot License” for anyone flying an unmanned aircraft (UA) above 1.5kg or below 7kg. This is inaccurate.

Under the UA Pilot Competency Framework, there are two different types of instruments, or requirements, UA Pilot License (UAPL) and the UA Basic Training Certificate (UABTC). 
While the UAPL will require you to sit for a theory and practical exam, the UABTC is a 2 hour e-learning that can be completed at home. You will need either of these depending on the weight of your aircraft and the purpose of flight.


Required for non-educational/non-recreational (incl. commercial) purposes for UA of all weights

Required for educational and recreational purposes for UA exceeding 7kg.


Required for educational and recreational purposes for UA more than 1.5kg but not exceeding 7kg.

This means that if you are flying a UA up to 1.5kg for educational and recreational purposes, the above will not apply. The minimum age to apply for a UAPL and UABTC is 16.
The above requirements will be effective 1 Feb 2021.

    Hi Great vid! I’m Mexican but I’ve been living in Singapore for a while now. I just got a DJI mini 2 to get started on drone videography. As you noted I do not have to register it as its 249 gr.

    However, I still have a lot of doubts regarding where and how can I fly it without getting in trouble. I got pointed at the drone query where it tells you where you are not supposed to fly it. Do you know if there is any other resource to know if I’m good to fly or not?

    is there anyway the govt will know if you’re flying your dji mavic mini within the no fly zones or flying your drone higher than 60m?

  14. Drewly Adventures on March 22, 2021 at 1:09 am

    Thanks for this explanation, can i ask something? Coz now Im flying with FPV drones(still newbie) before i fly my drone i always check my location on “one map” app if weather my spot is on flyzone or no flyzone, some spots is perfect on dlying cinewhoop style pf footage but i notice there this “area within 5km of aerodromes”

    Can i ask if this restriction will only be violated once i fly 60m up?
    Coz i only flew mine less than 10-20mts(too scared to lose my drone🤣🤣)
