Register Your New Drone Before You Get It Stuck In A Tree

That new drone you got for Christmas is awesome. Now, before you recklessly fly it into a tree — or a person — you should probably register it. (Video via DJI)
The Federal Aviation Administration requires all pilots — that's you — to register their small unmanned aircraft — that's your drone — online at faa.gov/uas/registration.
The administration opened its mandatory registration Monday and said that within 48 hours, more than 45,000 owners had registered. That's a lot in two days.
