Beginning September 16, 2023, the FAA will require all UAS operators mandated to register their drones with the FAA to comply with Remote ID rules


There are two ways to make your drone compliant:

  1. Remote ID capability is built into the drone (only specific models listed below have this capability through a firmware update)
  2. Remote ID capability through module attached to the drone (DroneDeploy's recommendation linked below)
