    I couldn't get the page to load at first. Once it loaded the site worked fine for me. It's a strict password requirement. You need a capital letter, a special character, and a number.

    Right! I followed the on screen instructions, got as far as validating my account. Then when I tried to sign in I got the above msg.

    It took a few minutes for the validation to work for me.

    Once you register, they will provide a decal or decals at your request mailed to you for free. And by the way, there is no need to keep repeating your ad in several threads. I believe it is againced the forum rules. One thread is all that is needed. You must be a approved vendor to advertise out side of the classified section.

    Decals are not provided by the FAA, nor will they be mailed to you free of charge. They don't do that when you get your "N" number either with your 333 exemption. UAS Marking information can be found HERE or see the FAQ HERE "You may use any method to affix the number, such as permanent marker, label, engraving, or other means, as long as the number is readily accessible and maintained in a condition that is readable and legible upon close visual inspection. If your unmanned aircraft has an easily accessible battery compartment you may affix the number in that compartment."

    Sorry for multiple posts, just getting the word out.

    You are right about the label. However, that was mentioned earlier last week. They must have removed it due to cost. Good luck with your ad.

    Thanks, I appreciate it.... Yeah I think the FAA may lose money on the deal since they are only gouging us $5 to begin with :D

    I'm NOT making it past the Proceed to Checkout.. Page locks up and continues to download. Haven't seen this since the days of Windows lol.. Does the registration process have to be done on a PC versus an iPad/iPhone or Mobile device? What Gives? I'm very computer savvy, so I'm guessing there are issues, or the network is swamped lol

    Tried three time to redo the password. No luck. Have to believe the site is having problems. Being the government it doesn't surprise me.

    It was mentioned in earlier threads that it was possible it would crash. I suppose they will get it together by Jan 20. That's my guess. Remember the Obama care registration site melt down? :cool:

    No worries.
    The taxes will be offset by the carbon credits we earn for flying electric:D.
