Recreational Drone Users
As of Dec. 21, 2015, the Federal Aviation Administration requires all owners of model aircraft, small unmanned aircraft or drones, or other RC aircraft weighing between 0.55 and 55 pounds to register online before taking to the skies.
The online registration system will require drone owners 13 years and older to submit their name, email and home address to receive a Certificate of Aircraft Registration/Proof of Ownership. This will include a unique identification number owners must affix to any drone they own and operate exclusively for recreation.
Registration cost is $5. Click here for registration information: https://registermyuas.faa.gov/
Registration will be valid for three years. Once registered, owners will be able to access the registration website to update the information provided to register the aircraft as well as cancel registration as circumstances require (e.g., aircraft destruction, transfer, sale, change in owner eligibility to register).
Failure to register an aircraft can result in civil penalties up to $27,500. Criminal penalties for failure to register can include fines of up to $250,000 under 18 U.S.C. 3571 and/or imprisonment up to three years.

Technology and design
A truly remarkable quadcopter! A unique design, made to the highest technical specifications – easy to assemble and easy to fly!
Polycarbonate shell – ultralight PVC!
The frame has enormous strength but is still surprisingly light – the result is a medium-sized drone with a take-off weight of only 3.37 pounds
Latest generation of brushless electric motors
The four brushless motors are powerful and silent. With less friction than conventional motors, they give a higher rotation speed and optimize battery consumption.
A professional remote control
The eight-channel digital radio remote control for the Sky Rider Drone will be given FREE as part of the series. It is a special transmitter operating in the 2.4 GHz band, which prevents external interference, even from other drones in the same airspace. The number of channels makes it much easier to fly the drone, and allows you to access special functions.
State of the art electronics
With accelerometer, barometric altimeter, gyroscopes, GPS sensor and magnetometer all included in the basic equipment.
Among the Sky Rider Drone’s many features are the multicolored LEDs located under the engine arms. In addition to creating a striking visual effect, these lights enable the pilot to see the orientation of the model during flight.
Compared with traditional nickel-cadmium batteries, lithium polymer batteries are lighter and provide greater flying range. The flight time with the 5000 mA battery will be between 10 and 12 minutes. High winds or aggressive flying will shorten the flight time. Please start with flights no longer than 10 minutes. Spare battery will be available soon for purchase.
