"We're going to require operators of drones to register their aircraft just like commercial drone operators do currently," U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx said at a press conference in October.
Registration opens Dec. 21 and costs $5, but it's free for the first 30 days.
Failure to register could mean fines up to $250,000 and/or three years in prison. (Video via FAA)
