Will these come updated to the current FCC requirements? Also are these large enough to require FCC registration?

Can I use my S8?

FCC no longer requires Americans to register toys.

Apparently this one does not have GPS, so it won’t do things like come back to where it started. But for the price, pretty cool. It’s also not clear if this one folds up or not. But for $50, pretty cool…

Registration is once again required for drones over 55g.

"On December 12, 2017, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2017 was passed saying, “(d) Restoration Of Rules For Registration And Marking Of Unmanned Aircraft.—The rules adopted by the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration in the matter of registration and marking requirements for small unmanned aircraft (FAA-2015-7396; published on December 16, 2015) that were vacated by the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in Taylor v. Huerta (No. 15-1495; decided on May 19, 2017) shall be restored to effect on the date of enactment of this Act.”

So I guess that’s a yes then. Bummer and a PITA.

Actually, my post has a glaring error. The weight limit is .55 lbs, which is around 250g not 55g. Sorry.

Actually, it’s not that much of PITA. I currently have a parrot bebop 2 that is registered non commercial. It costs like $5 and only take a few minutes. I am working on the commercial license, which is way more of a PITA than you would expect.

FCC could give a ratz arse. At least learn the law and who wrote it. There is no “updating to the latest requirements” if it flies outside and weighs over .55 lbs then you have to register with the FAA, period!

Not 55 grams, .55 lbs. learn 2 read

Yes it is considering basically nothing on the test is suas related.

How big is this monster? I bought one for my kid it turned out to be smaller than a deck of cards.

whats the size length of this baby

GPS is accessible through the Flight Recorder accessory.

I bought my Parrot AR 2.0 about 10 months ago. Filed with the FCC. Got a case number but never a registration. About two months later I contacted them to find out what the deal was. Never heard back from them. Went over my credit card statement. Never got charged for my fees. So, I am like basically screw’em. I did my part. They are the ones that dropped the ball. Besides my kid really don’t fly around airports. School soccer fields and stuff.

It’s about 22 inches by 22 inches, uses smartphone as controller

FAA registration went smoothly online for me. I printed everything I needed from the website as to FAA number and carry card. Why risk the penalty of not following rules for $5 (plus, if you lose the drone and somebody finds it, they have a much better chance of locating the owner to return it.)

This does NOT fold up (although I guess it would break down into smaller pieces if you flew it real fast into a wall or tree trunk - thus, be wary of a used drone advertised as “only flown once” - LOL) ALL controls are on free smartphone app - available both android and iOS. Indoor hull protects blades better from hitting walls and stuff, but tends to catch the wind too much outdoors, hence the two hulls. Very easy to switch hulls - no tools needed.

Thank you, Donald Trump.
