    Most people don't keep their full size aircraft in their house though.

    Nor are they 13 year old kids. I think that's the major issue in the article.

    Are we sure there is no requirement for a parent to register if one is not of legal age?
    I can't recall when I have seen a juvenile be able to sign something official like this.

    Full scale aircraft may not be kept at a residence, but is registered to one.
    Not sure what distinction you mean?

    So, you anticipate that in the future, the registration will ask for, and display a registrant's age? Because it does not now.

    While I have no interest in defending the FAA with this suas registration, you guys have to understand that flying a model aircraft is not a constitutional right.

    Sorry Dave, I didn't maybe communicate correctly. It's a bit of a mute comment from me anyway not being in the US!

    The whole thing does seem to have that 'rushed out for Christmas' feeling. I meant that most full size registered aircraft owners have their aircraft asset somewhere else other than the address in in register. There seems to be a higher privacy and security risk as most UAV owners will have their asset at their registered address and that also naturally being a home and with a family.

    Purely as a point of interest, or maybe not to some, here in the UK currently it's only commercial pilots that are registered AND their aircraft.

    Publicly all that is searchable is an alphabetical list of the company or T/A name or persons name, CAA ID no., issue/expiry date. If enforcement entities need it they can obtain further info from the ID no.

    I see. Your point is that a potential thief could find out where to go to steal a drone?

    I guess I had not thought of that as being a problem, but maybe it could be? Perhaps drone manufactures should begin including a required PIN to arm a drone, making it useless to thieves?

    Riding a bike, horse or even a skate board is not a constitutional right and many thousands of people have used them to do major crimes or have been injured and killed using them and you wont hear anything about registration or ban of them.
    So whats your point ?

    We would not need a pin to arm if we are not public record.

    Well, using your example, skateboarding was in fact demonized in it's time in a smaller but similar way that drones are being demonized now.
    But, I guess my point is that we are talking about the NAS, and for better or worse, we have this new registration requirement.

    Currently, it's not.. If you are afraid that your information will not be kept private, then talk with your federal representatives. Complaining to this forum isn't going to change anything.

    So, do you think you should or should not get a drivers lic, car registraion, etc.? Ignore rules and laws we disagree with? Sorry, I'm not sure what you are getting at?

    But that's ok. I don't really need to understand or debate anything. If you personally don't register your UAS, I really don't care either way.

    Sure. And, I agree with your points about the FAA's knee jerk reaction. But, fact is, I will comply. If there are guys that want to protest against the registration by not registering rather than by building consensus with their elected officials, then eventually, we will probably get to see if the FAA's new registration stands up in court, which would be fine.

    Because there are so many thieves out looking for a drone to steal.
    And if they were .... and could hack the registry database to get a full listing what would they have?
    A list of names and addresses of drone owners.
    But nothing to indicate who has a $50 250 gram toy drone and who has an Inspire or something more expensive.
    Any specialised drone thieves would do a lot better targeting shops than wasting time looking into the database.

    So how does charging $5 per three years, while not introducing any new rules or regulations affect your pursuit of happiness?

    I'm not afraid or complaining as my name and addresses are already all over the world net with pictures of more spendy items than drones I was just giving my opinion. It dousnt bother me that I had to register but I agree with many others that don't live in fort nox like I do that it shouldn't be public record.
    I don't care much for thieves and if my info was used to try a burglary it would be the last for the bad guy so in a sorta way
    the registration is a invitation for a very bad day for the thief at my home.

    Privacy?? You've got as much now as you had last month.
    What freedom has been restricted? You can still fly just the same as always.
    There are no new rules or restrictions.
    Really ?? I can't see how you have any less privacy than previously.
    This makes no difference except for the $5 every 3 years.

    It just looks like you're trying hard to make some anti-government statement but not coming up with anything convincing either anti-government or to show your freedoms are affected.
