    Can someone tell me where the cheapest place to register is.
    I found between $30-$50.
    I thought it was supposed to be about $5.

    If you're referring to the FAA, then go here.

    You need to read this: FAA: Think Twice about "Drone Registration" Firms

    FAA: Think Twice about "Drone Registration" Firms
    Unmanned aircraft users should know they probably won’t need help registering their drones when the system is in place.
    The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) wants unmanned aircraft owners to know that there's no need to work with a “drone registration” company to help them file an application for a registration number.
    Owners should wait until additional details about the forthcoming drone registration system are announced later this month before paying anyone to do the work for them.
    The Task Force assigned to provide FAA Administrator Michael Huerta with recommendations on the registration process is still days away from delivering this information. But at least one company is already offering to help people register their drones for a fee.

    Speaking to the Task Force two weeks ago, Administrator Huerta told the group to provide guidance on a streamlined unmanned aircraft registration process that will be simple and easy to complete, and which types of UAS would need to be registered and which would not. The Task Force agreed and is working on recommendations for a system that is similar to registering any newly purchased product with its manufacturer as well as a minimum weight for unmanned aircraft that must be registered.
    Drone owners should visit FAA.gov for official updates on the unmanned aircraft registry.

    If you do insist on registering, then the ONLY place you should be registering is at the FAA as Donnie and Mike suggested. Anywhere else, you are getting scammed.
