The Consumer Technology Association forecasts that 400,000 drones will be sold in the United States this holiday season. That’s not to mention the commercial drones being developed by Google (now known as Alphabet), Amazon, Walmart and others.
In the face of this drone proliferation, the Federal Aviation Administration called a special task force to develop a way to get a grip on all the drones in the sky. The task force is now recommended that the government set up a simple registration system for anyone who owns an unmanned aircraft heavier than 250 grams, which is about half a pound.
