Beginning September 16, 2023, the FAA will require all UAS operators who are required to register their drones with the FAA to be compliant with Remote ID rules


There are two ways to make your drone compliant:

  1. Remote ID capability is built into the drone (only certain 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)

DroneDeploy has partnered with Dronetag, which produces FAA-approved modules you can attach to your drone to meet the FAA’s Remote ID requirements. 


We’ve tested both the Dronetag Mini and Beacon modules on the following drones:
