    Got the Mavic on order (the fly more bundle.) I'm a photographer and graphic artist so the device will be primarily a mobile camera platform. I've been playing with mini copters and various quads for years. Time to graduate to bigger hardware that I can actually use in my work.

    Just got my FAA drone pilot registration finished. Now I wait with y'all for the new bird!

    Welcome and remember that the registration number registers the pilot and not the aircraft. So this registration number can and should be added to all sUAS in your possession.

    Yep. I'm on top of that. Tons of research done already and more in progress. The longer I have to wait for it the more prepared I plan to be.

    It is if you're flying as a hobbyist.

    The weather is not cooperating at all. "Luckily," mine hasn't gotten here yet.

    I'm talking about the registration #. Does it have to be on the outside of the craft.

    Q38. How do I mark my unmanned aircraft with the unique registration number?

    A. You may use any method to affix the number, such as permanent marker, label, engraving, or other means, as long as the number is readily accessible and maintained in a condition that is readable and legible upon close visual inspection. If your unmanned aircraft has an easily accessible battery compartment you may affix the number in that compartment.
