181,000 aircraft have been registered The FAA doesn't even know that they are registering pilots not aircraft and that's a quote from the ADMINISTRATOR OF THE FAA.... OMG !!!

"As of today, about 181,000 aircraft have been registered," FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said in a statement. "But this is just the beginning. Now that we have set up the registration system, our challenge is to make sure everyone is aware of the requirement and registers."

" the requirement" but is a "requirement" law, and /or is it legally enforceable?

Can they scare you into signing up with threats of $250.000 fines or even $27.000 fines

That's my question too. I haven't registered yet. How are they addressing registration for US servicemen and civilian enthusiasts abroad right now?

What are the chances of us getting jacked up by base law enforcement who don't fly but read bits and pieces of this FAA thing?

I recently PCS'd to an Airbase here in South Korea and I have been trying to get information on airspace protocol before I do anything, but no one has any written directives. I've flown here several times on past tours and all I needed to do was contact AFM before and after flight and stay under 500ft.

Should I register even though I'm not stateside? Could be penalized for not registering if I fly in overseas US airspace? How does the FAA rule apply to US service personnel overseas?

181,000 pilots registered, all of which of regular responsible and true modelers who probably mostly registered out of fear and clickbaited by the cash back guarantee, lol. Fact is they were never the target of this whole problem anyways. Ive met many park droners around town this last month and made an effort to go over and talk to them. Not a single one even heard of registration, so yea this is a real win.

No Refund Here Either.....
I registered the very first day... I do not have a refund yet either. I just checked my account on-line. I see the charge, but no refund. That is almost a million dollars if none of the 181K registered received a refund.

As to the Canadian telling you to play dumb when you get caught. The FAA is known for harsh penalties from the get go. Playing around with them is not recommended.

the mechanisms of terror at work to get people to register rather than inviting them is ghestapo like tactics, "register OR ELSE" pay the consequences.

Had the FAA invited people to register they would have got a slow but more firmly rooted system where many hobbyists would have supported the plan with open arms. Essentially they duplicated the ama's membership methods and now say the entire continental usa is one big rc uas/uav field for use but negatively with limitations and consequences to those who by accident of by design cross the lines. Enthusiasts fear based on increasing restrictions and personal info gathering to possibly subject members to fines as extreme as the faa see fit. Not very FRIENDLY is it? do you see a plague of drone craft threatening the friendly skies? They got your credit card info, they fine you and incur a withdrawl, you get the statement and are not able to keep up with payments go belly up and turn into someone you were getting away from before you discovered rc hobbies, hostile, angry, and hateful of the system. Definitely take the smile off more than a few.

Finally someone did the math on a million $ worth of signees. The regs infringe on the past rc hobbyists freedoms, facilitates commercializing the under 500ft airspace and profit no one more than corporations listed on stock markets who desperately and competitively want that airspace regulated. Without regulation they cannot proceed with commercial interests/plans plain and simple, the faa and corps are the bigwigs and everyone with a "toy" can bug off.

I hear the number of birds in the air are increasing due to global warming, it isn't going to be "drones" that are the problem, not with the increase in wetlands and birds. Drone multis are a nuisance really, just a nuisance.

I can speak on behalf of some contingent of rc heli and rc plank owners when I say LEAVE US ALONE, after all we didn't buy in to rc helis to take out the world trade towers or anything, furthest thing from that in fact, furthest.

RC Hobby aviation has left the building, or has it been chased out?

At least in Canada they are making the distinction between commercial and hobbyist and are leaving them alone

I guess our police aren't as gestapo as yours either.
Nobody is saying head to airport with your model and go fly in defiance.

but until there are headlines like 12yr boy charge with 27K$ for flying in park. or some media campaign.
pleading ignorance usually works

Besides I don't visit forums on a regular basis this is just a past time

that "Drone Show" vid was really bad in content, lot of bad suggestions on law and "dunno" responses, what? you WANT SOMETHING to cage you in more with stricter limitations what you can and cannot do? terrible. Why are they giving the auth suggestions like rc thing, uas/uav, drone flyers are mostly idiots who need to be contained? need diapers, need schooling? at a $1000 dollars? puhleeze.
Beware park flyers. If u registered n fly at a park u could have trouble if sum one doesn't approve n calls Leo n says u were flying over them or make sure to check for bystanders.
and 3d? could be considered reckless, one mistake and erratic save and/or crash and they cuff you? for real now, I have vids of people walking under my rc heli and with dogs and near dogs and people, not because I wanted them there, they so happen to venture into my flight space for no reason other than to get to the other side. Last summer a dji Inspire over a crowd of a 1000 with an mc taunting "wave to the drone everyone" I can demonstrate a good margin of safety with all parties How long has Enrique Eglesias been flying "drones" over his audiences?

You've heard the saying "Absolute Power corrupts Absolutely" and "Give them an inch and they'll take a mile"?

Watched the AMA/FAA video from CA
We certainly got the wrong "HOOT GIBSON" that day, guy is way into the alphabet bureau speak and just playing the name drop game and couldn't give a real damn about our situation, just does the
agency circle-jerk like he understands and is listening. He's an ex-jet jockey just watching the money players in the NAS and politely smacking us hobby-geeks to the side with a smile.
181,000 registered is way short of the 400,000 Christmas boogey-man sales number they were fearing. Truth is the horses are way out of the barn and this is all a show and a power-grab. Pity the poor shlub that gets held up as the $27,500 example to scare the crap out of the rest of us.
