Just in time for Christmas, if you're planning on getting a drone for the holidays, chances are you're going to have to register it with the FAA. The new rule, which will require most drones to be registered, whether new or old, comes with a potential fine of $250,000 and 3 years in jail for those who fail to comply.
The problem is that the database that will be built by the FAA will be public and completely searchable. So people would easily find out where you live. So Leo advises getting a PO Box to act as a buffer if you're concerned with privacy.
