    My nephew has a drone, and claims to not require registering it because he's in the state of Washington. Without spending 20 hours of research on this, does this drone require registering or not

    If it would take 20 hours to find this, you need to learn how to use Google.
    Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Registration
    Effective December 21, 2015, anyone who owns a small unmanned aircraft of a certain weight must register with the Federal Aviation Administration's Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) registry before they fly outdoors. People who previously operated their UAS must register by February 19, 2016. People who do not register could face civil and criminal penalties.

    Who must register a UAS?
    The owner must be:
    • 13 years of age or older. (If the owner is less than 13 years of age, a person 13 years of age or older must register the small unmanned aircraft.)
    • A U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident.
    Which unmanned aircraft do I have to register?
    Owners must register their UAS online if it meets the following guidelines:

    Weighs more than 0.55 lbs. (250 g) and less than 55 lbs. (25 kg).
