FAA Updates Drone Rules for Everyone

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration is still working to figure out the best way of making sure that people fly their drones safely and legally. It's very much a work in progress, and has been for years. At this point, anyone who wants to fly a drone weighing more than 250 grams (even just for fun in the backyard) must register that drone and follow some generally common sense rules and regulations. The FAA, to their credit, has been keeping track of how this has all been going, and late last week they announced a few important updates. The new change that will affect everyone is that all drones are now required to display registration information externally.
