New law requires all drones to display ID numbers

As of Feb 23, 2019 the US government is ordering drone owners in the US to display their registration drone ID numbers to make it easier to track the owner.

The order was published on Feb 12 at the Federal Register. It will take effect on February 23rd.

Up until this point, owners were allowed to put their registration numbers inside the battery compartments of their drones. That was mandated back in 2015. Four years later, with this is the latest change, the ID numbers need to be visible without have to open any part of the drone.

Why is the being implemented?
The FAA says this tweak to the law was implemented because it is responding to safety concerns. “ … regarding the risk a concealed explosive device poses to first responders who must open a compartment to find the small unmanned aircraft’s registration number,” says the FAA.

Safe flying....
