    So I registered my Phantom4, and I have a Registration number....what about the tail number?

    I reserved one and would like to use that one. Help?

    No tail number is required for recreational use.

    Not sure what you have done.

    Not likely an 'N' number was assigned to a hobby/recreational flyer for a DJI Phantom.

    Is this the type of number you got along with registering? I don't know if it's a REGULATION or not, but I think having your reg # on the craft is recommended.

    There is a conflation of a registration. number and a 'reserved tail number'.

    Yes your registration number must be affixed to your UAS but you cannot reserve one so there is a conflation.
