It seems from the info I have found online and at a local RC Hobby shop that I register once and pay the fee - $5 - per year which you pay $15 for a 3 year period.

I was also confused and thought that each drone/quadcopter/helicopter/airplane between .55 and 55 lbs. would have to each have their own separate registered number.

After checking in the places I stated, I found out I register once, get one number, and use that one number for each "overweight" lol aircraft that fits in the range previously stated.

If anyone has anything different, please post.

Thanks.

Great info Bob, thank you for posting. I wasn't aware of this.

This is what Best Buy states with the drones it sells:

The FAA requires operators of unmanned aircraft weighing more than 0.55 pounds (250 grams) on takeoff (including everything on board or attached), and operating outdoors, be registered at www.faa.gov/uas/registration. If you are under age 13, you must have a parent or someone age 13 or older register for you.

Additional state or local requirements may apply. Check your local jurisdiction. The following websites may help you make informed decisions about how regulations impact you: www.knowbeforeyoufly.org and www.modelaircraft.org.
