Drone registration deadline is Feb. 19 - Fox29 WFLX TV, West Palm Beach, FL-news & weather

Drone registration deadline is Feb. 19

Friday is the last day to register your drone with the FAA without facing a fine if you bought it prior to Dec. 21.

The FAA requires users to register drones weighing anywhere from a half pound to about 55 pounds.

The agency was under pressure to regulate the industry after a swath of crashes and violations of the basic rules.

Registration costs $5. 

After Feb. 19, users must register a drone before its first flight or face a civil penalty of up to $27,000

Some municipalities have made their own rules pertaining to drones, so users are urged to check area laws before flights.
