The Drone Under Your Tree Can't Fly High Until Registered With The FAA


But on Christmas morning, remember this warning: if they weigh more than 0.55 pounds, the high-flying gadgets have to be registered with the Federal Aviation Administration.


A registrant must attach a Drone ID number, linked to the owner's name and address, and pay a $5 fee.


Some localities, including Washington, D.C., are "No Drone Zones" where unmanned aircraft systems are outright prohibited.


"The agency wants to send out a clear message that operating Drones around airplanes, helicopters and airports is dangerous and illegal," says the FAA's website.


A slight majority of Americans think that drones shouldn't be allowed to fly near private homes, according to Pew Research Center.
