    Great video. Stupid law!

    Here in Germany we have to tag our drones on the outside with fireproof stickers. They read the address of the owner, not a registration number. And as I fly my drone commercially, I had to get an aviation insurance, not a private liability insurance. This costs me about 10 € a month.

    How to register for non us registration

  4. SOUVIK SAMANTA on October 13, 2020 at 12:47 pm

    I am from India, and I am planning to buy a drone in USA . Like mavic pro. And then come back to India within 2 weeks . In this case should I need to register? I am non us resident and travel for business meeting for 2 weeks.

    i have a question. why do you cover your registration #? thank you

  6. Jason Noyes on October 13, 2020 at 12:49 pm

    stupid; no thanks; sorry government; no can do;

  7. Michael Matthews on October 13, 2020 at 12:51 pm

    Easy enough. I just used masking tape and magic marker

  8. Sinomin on October 13, 2020 at 12:52 pm

    SO CLOSE TO 100,000 SUBS!! (I subbed)

  9. steve diosdado on October 13, 2020 at 12:52 pm

    Almost to that 100k mark. Congrats and thank you for all the much needed help your videos provide the drone community.

  10. Rick on October 13, 2020 at 12:52 pm

    Now when you wieght your drone do you have the battery in the drone?

  11. steve c on October 13, 2020 at 12:56 pm

    Didn’t they do away with registration a while back?

  12. Tim lone on October 13, 2020 at 12:56 pm

    Register your drone so the FAA Nazis can come take them. Burn down the whole system

  13. Drones Eye View Ireland on October 13, 2020 at 12:59 pm

    Fuck that..

  14. R T on October 13, 2020 at 12:59 pm

    It’s five bucks and good for three years. Yes, it identifies your drone to you but will sure beat getting a fine in the unlikely event someone gets nosy.

  15. Zephyr on October 13, 2020 at 1:01 pm

    No thanks. Still gonna rip my 2750kvs on 6s when I damn well please. The soccer moms can complain about the noise all they want.

  16. oh. honeyboy on October 13, 2020 at 1:04 pm

    can i just write it with pen on a piece of paper and put tape over it? serious question

  17. Andy Royce on October 13, 2020 at 1:05 pm

    As I read the regulation…if the compartment can be opened without a tool it can be used. What did you read?

  18. tiny kitty on October 13, 2020 at 1:05 pm
    can i use this website to register a drone???????????????????🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

  19. Joseph Azzarelli on October 13, 2020 at 1:07 pm

    Supposedly law enforcement asked for this rule as they were concerned with removing a battery to see the registration may trigger a bomb. It is hilarious. Those with nefarious designs will not register their bomb-drone and they will not be putting any identifying marking anywhere. Not even fingerprints.

    Another dopey rule that only the law abiding will…abide by.

  20. Rob Justice on October 13, 2020 at 1:07 pm

    Hey Ed! Just stumbled on your videos after getting my new Mavic Pro Platinum. I’m over here in Wake Forest. It was cool to see you’re from the same area. Hit me up if you take the drones out.

  21. Ununpentius on October 13, 2020 at 1:07 pm

    What does my $5 actually buy me?? For example if I dont register and I have an incident with the drone involving someone, or someones property, the FAA comes after me with hefty fines and penalties including jail time for up to 3 years! But what if Im registered and I have an incident??

  22. Jamie White on October 13, 2020 at 1:08 pm

    I went directly through dronzone and got hit for $25, called them up on it and they have no clue why it’s that way.

  23. droneflyer15 droneflyer15 on October 13, 2020 at 1:09 pm

    Ed. How u liking that Autel Evo?

  24. Coast to Coast Drones' on October 13, 2020 at 1:09 pm

    sounded like you had a hard time saying Evo ..but that’s understandable …LOL … nice video …and I thought the lip reading was spot on !!

  25. miloš benčič on October 13, 2020 at 1:09 pm

    better go live in siberia than in the usa

  26. Anthony wopaness on October 13, 2020 at 1:09 pm

    has anyone noticed how negative both public and law enforcement are to us Drone flyers, how we suddenly have to play 20 questions like we were caught running a crack house. "is there a camera on that", "you can’t fly that here", "what do you think your doing" funny thing is, what is perceived while we partake in our hobby is not based on what has happened during our Drone hobby. could some Ass-Hat use his drone to check out some beach bunny I suppose but the same could be said with a pair of binoculars and since we now have 24 hour 3000 sites of porn within the internet, using you drone seems kinda stupid. Is it within the realm of possibility that a Drone could if collided with an aircraft cause damage and or injury, sure although i’m a little unsure on the thought it would take down a jumbo jet but as far as my research has concluded there has been no FAA drone vs. plane encounter where any damage nor injury happened in fact although a multitude of collision reports has been aimed at drones the FAA final conclusion hasn’t been the fault of an Drone. in fact I believe we will see jail time if drinking and flying a drone plus a move to insure drones in case of a crash. talk about a joy kill.

  27. Ryan Daugherty on October 13, 2020 at 1:11 pm

    Hey, Ed. I had to return my drone that I had already registered and Best Buy replaced it.  Do you know if it is possible to transfer my registration to my new drone?

  28. plot vibes on October 13, 2020 at 1:11 pm

    Do i have to take the test for sec. 336??

  29. Gaptastic on October 13, 2020 at 1:11 pm

    ed ricker and russ (51 drones) are my goto drone guys! please keep keeping it real!

  31. leather rock on October 13, 2020 at 1:12 pm

    I kinda understand there might be some sort of trade in deal for the new mavic pro zoom .I have a mavic pro an thinking about getting the new pro two..any info will help..thanks

  32. TheAdkFlyer10 on October 13, 2020 at 1:12 pm

    New laws enacted by the FAA. And here I thought only Congress, the Senate and the President had the power to make laws…

  33. Mabrouk Ali on October 13, 2020 at 1:14 pm

    *Now when it comes to paying, do you pay for each drone you own or for each user?*

  34. tisoy909 on October 13, 2020 at 1:15 pm

    Thank you for the distinction between the part 107 and the recreational registration.

  35. FunkiesLOL on October 13, 2020 at 1:16 pm

    I do not like fly near airport or private airport and I only prefer fly on large landscape

  36. Stealth Warrior on October 13, 2020 at 1:17 pm

    Thx Ed. Like the small font idea – since big labels don’t easily fit and will deface my smaller, prized RC toys. Gov’t over-reach keeps ramping up!

  37. akaredcrossbow on October 13, 2020 at 1:24 pm

    What makes no sense with recreational use is that you get a FAA number that is connected to the person, but not to the specific drone! So that means if somebody copies your number that is on your Mavic Pro and used those numbers on their Phantom 4 Pro that is not registered and crashes into pedestrians and serious hurting them, they would come after the original owner of those numbers! Seems like the FAA is just collecting money for absolutely no reason!

  38. Do RC on October 13, 2020 at 1:25 pm

    So fucking stupid. This what happens when the faa can make whatever rules they want whenever they want. Rest assured more will come.

  39. Cli Cur on October 13, 2020 at 1:25 pm

    Quick question: Should I give out my FAA number to a decal manufacturer for a sticker to place on it? Just curious if it’s something we should be giving out to anyone.

  40. glenesis on October 13, 2020 at 1:26 pm

    Thanks. I do mark mine on the outside anyway. Cheers!

  41. Robert Glazier on October 13, 2020 at 1:28 pm


  42. Goop Man on October 13, 2020 at 1:29 pm

    Even on a racing drone?? Huh. I can see why if the drone is capable of going miles out but a racing drone generally stays within LOS. What happens if one still flies all there drones with no registration??

  43. Fluffy 1 on October 13, 2020 at 1:32 pm

    I should be able to fly when and where my happy ass decides to. That why my drones fly anywhere anytime day or night. Zero restrictions! Everything in this world is possible with a little knowledge.

  44. Gary Shepard on October 13, 2020 at 1:32 pm

    Did I miss something? I thought some guy went to court a year or so ago and the court ruled that drone owners no longer had to register their drones with the FAA.

  45. Dennis Stewart on October 13, 2020 at 1:35 pm

    PHUK EM. Nope no comply.

  46. Common Sense Logic and Reason on October 13, 2020 at 1:35 pm

    Even if you fly recreational you have to register each drone individual.

  47. quantumphaser on October 13, 2020 at 1:38 pm

    I wrote it on a prop blade with a dry erase marker.

  48. James Williams on October 13, 2020 at 1:38 pm

    Totally enjoy your videos, you along with 51 Drones make it easy to follow and understand. Keep up the great work, your walkthroughs are right up there among the best. Thank you

  49. FunkiesLOL on October 13, 2020 at 1:40 pm

    Hi nice vid, do I need to register my pro 2 ??? I Iive in USA and what do you suggest ????

  50. EscobarTV45 on October 13, 2020 at 1:42 pm

    I simply taped a picture of a middle finger on all of my quads.
