09 Jan: Unwrap a Drone? Register with the FAA Before You Fly

Drones were a hot holiday gift this year, and if you’re among the lucky ones who unwrapped one, here are a few things for you to know.

Flying a drone is as fun as it is challenging. You’ll learn to maneuver around obstacles like trees and rooftops, and you’ll practice navigating wind and greasing landings. Best Buy has a great Drone Buying Guide that can help you ensure you get all you can out of your drone-flying experience.

But before you take to the skies, you may also need to register with the FAA – a federal requirement, even for recreational use – and it’s super easy.
