I went on CNBC's Closing Bell to talk about drone registration

Flip that Nano!

Yesterday, I went on CNBC to talk about drone registration. I only had time to really share that drone registration exists and fly around in the studio a bit using a Blade Nano QX 3D (one of my favorite indoor toy drones), but the reality of drone registration is that it is a complicated issue. I am very much looking forward to all of this regulatory friction going away, but in the meantime, you can either register your drones that weigh more than 250 grams (0.55 lbs, or heavier than "two sticks of butter," per the FAA FAQ), or you can do a bit more research yourselves in the short grace period that we have, especially if you purchased your drone(s) before December 15 and don't need to register until February 19, 2016.  If you want to learn more, read these articles:
