Only if you fly drones for a business.

You should read the bottom....

Part 107 will not apply to model aircraft. Model aircraft operators must continue to satisfy all the criteria specified in Section 336 of Public Law 112-95 (PDF) (which will now be codified in Part 101), including the stipulation they be operated only for hobby or recreational purposes.

SEC. 336. SPECIAL RULE FOR MODEL AIRCRAFT.
(a) IN GENERAL.—Notwithstanding any other provision of law
relating to the incorporation of unmanned aircraft systems into
Federal Aviation Administration plans and policies, including this
subtitle, the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration
may not promulgate any rule or regulation regarding a model
aircraft, or an aircraft being developed as a model aircraft, if—
(1) the aircraft is flown strictly for hobby or recreational
use;
(2) the aircraft is operated in accordance with a community based
set of safety guidelines and within the programming
of a nationwide community-based organization;
(3) the aircraft is limited to not more than 55 pounds
unless otherwise certified through a design, construction,
inspection, flight test, and operational safety program administered
by a community-based organization;
(4) the aircraft is operated in a manner that does not
interfere with and gives way to any manned aircraft; and
(5) when flown within 5 miles of an airport, the operator
of the aircraft provides the airport operator and the airport
air traffic control tower (when an air traffic facility is located
at the airport) with prior notice of the operation (model aircraft
operators flying from a permanent location within 5 miles of
an airport should establish a mutually-agreed upon operating
procedure with the airport operator and the airport air traffic
control tower (when an air traffic facility is located at the
airport)).
(b) STATUTORY CONSTRUCTION.—Nothing in this section shall
be construed to limit the authority of the Administrator to pursue
enforcement action against persons operating model aircraft who
endanger the safety of the national airspace system.
(c) MODEL AIRCRAFT DEFINED.—In this section, the term ‘‘model
aircraft’’ means an unmanned aircraft that is—
(1) capable of sustained flight in the atmosphere;

"Good" news?

AND - you must get a UAS pilots certificate by passing an FAA test.
Yes, even if you are a hobbyest.
AND you must be at least 16 years old.

Hardly GOOD news.

From the Part 107 summary:

"• A person operating a small UAS must either hold a remote
pilot airman certificate with a small UAS rating or be under
the direct supervision of a person who does hold a remote
pilot certificate (remote pilot in command).
• To qualify for a remote pilot certificate, a person must:
o Demonstrate aeronautical knowledge by either:
 Passing an initial aeronautical knowledge test at
an FAA-approved knowledge testing center; or
 Hold a part 61 pilot certificate other than student
pilot, complete a flight review within the previous
24 months, and complete a small UAS online
training course provided by the FAA.
o Be vetted by the Transportation Security Administration.
o Be at least 16 years old."

If you are a Hobbist ....

Part 107 does not apply unless you planned on doing something that you will be compensate for:
- wedding photos
- commercial Aerial Photography
- etc

You will have to go to an FAA Approved Testing site:
https://www.faa.gov/training_testin...est_centers.pdf

- approximate cost $150 -/+ $30
- 60 questions

If you already have a scale pilot's license, than there is a course you can take online and bypass the "initial aerounatical knowledge test" (AKT) since you already it.

If you are a hobbyist ... You do nothing other than register for Unmanned Aircraft.

I feel this rule is very fair. Keeps your average Joe in the "know" and education is the key.

Better Then I Thought!!

Well, for now it seems the "bullet" has passed us modelers...It certainly sounds like they are going to leave us alone except for the FAA registration (total BS) but, if this is it, we are good...

Not likely Stan. At some point the FAA Reauthorization Act will have to be renewed. While it might be DOA right now, there will be another opportunity for a bunch of politicians with less than zero knowledge of aviation to pass oppressive legislation. I don't think this is over by a long shot.

makes no difference whatsoever...

dumba$$es will still be flying drones near and over stuff they shouldnt and sticking everything illegal to them.

The regulation only applies to law abiding citizens...

the turds that lead up to this mess are still working very hard at being spotted doing stupid stuff and double hard showing off the equally tarded stuff they've gotten away with by posting it on Youtube.

meanwhile the rest of us have have to have a rectal examination everytime we wana play with a flying toy or make a buck doing so.

why not just arrest the stupid drone operators and throw the book at them for flying where, how and what they shouldnt...instead of coming up with yet another pile of paperwork we have to manage.

...oh thats right, government bureaucracy at its finest with the added benefit of more money for "certifications", licences, and personal info they have no idea how to protect.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...
