FAA unwraps drone rules for the holidays. Fearing as many as a million new drones might land under Christmas trees this year.FAA has announced a new regulation on drones. The Obama administration announced that all units weighing between 0.55 pounds and 50 pounds must be registered by February 19th, 2016.

All the drones weighing between 0.55 lbs and 50 lbs must be registered on FAA's official website. It's a nightmare for most of the drones like DJI. FAA offers unique registration number to approved submitters and those drone owners are required to paste or paint their own numbers on their drone.
