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 their Remote ID rules.
There are two ways to make your drone compliant:
- Remote ID capability is built into the drone (only certain models, listed below, have this capability through a firmware update)
- Remote ID capability through module attached to the drone (DroneDeploy’s recommendation linked below)
Drones with Built-In Remote ID Capability (via Firmware Update)
- Mavic 3 Enterprise
- Mavic 3E
- Mavic 3T (capture not supported by DroneDeploy)
- Mavic 3M (capture not supported by DroneDeploy)
- DJI Air 2S
- Matrice 300 RTK
- Matrice 30/30T (capture not supported by DroneDeploy)
- Mini 3 Pro (capture not supported by DroneDeploy)
- Mavic 3 (capture not supported by DroneDeploy)
- Skydio 2+
For information on other drones, please check with the drone manufacturer.
Want to Fly Drones that won’t have Built-In Capability?
DroneDeploy has partnered with a company, Dronetag, which produces FAA-approved modules you can attach to your drone to meet the FAA’s Remote ID requirements. You can purchase them here.
We have tested the modules on the following drones:
- Mavic 2 Pro
- Phantom 4 Pro
- Mavic Air 2
You can purchase individual units directly from Dronetag. If you would like to purchase in bulk for your team, DroneDeploy can put you in touch with a local distributor.
