I am a new flyer who plans to record for money should I/do I need to register my drone?
No. You need to get a 333 exemption.
For profit needs a 333 exemption and a licensed pilot
Where do I get one of them?
Click my link above.
How much do they cost?
It does not cost anything to apply for a 333 exemption.
I'm reading this, so I only need this not the COA and I don't have to register?
the pilot license however will cost you 4-10k depending on how fast you learn and how quick you want to get it done.
Geese!!! That's too much! Are there any penalties for not having a pilot license?
You cannot use the FAA UAS registration when flying for commercial purposes. Instead, you must register each aircraft and get an N number for each aircraft. In most cases, you don't need a COA when flying below 200 feet.
A pilot license will be a requirement in your approved 333 exemption. So, you will not be able to use your exemption without it.
Are there penalties for not having those?
You cannot fly for profit without a 333 exemption (and following the requirements within). Doing so would be illegal.
I like to fly high, I will be recording for realtors so I would need a really good aerial shot
I just don't think I can spend a couple thousand on a pilot license
In most cases, 200 feet is probably too high for taking video/photos of homes.
Then, you should not fly commercially.
:/ So if I am just flying at my house do I need to register the drone? And will you walk me through the process?
