You'll need to register with the FAA here and mark your aircraft with your FAA registration number before flying. If you're only flying as a hobbyist, choose the option to register under Section 336.

I only have one drone and it is not registered.
As others have noted, you need to register the drone with the FAA before you fly it outdoors. For hobby/recreation, you will actually be registering yourself and not the actual drone.

You only need a license if you are flying the drone for something other than hobby/recreation such as for commercial or business purposes.

I think that @Thunderdrones is referring to your thread where you said you lost your Mavic Pro. Was that one registered? Need Mavic Pro Drone

The first drone that I lost in a lake was not registered. The one I bought to replace it is also not registered yet. If required, I will register it this week.

No, I have never registered a drone. My Mavic Pro was purchased used on eBay. Does it matter if it may have already been registered?
It doesn't matter if it may have already been registered with the FAA.

You need to be registered.
