Before you can fly, there are a few FAA drone laws that should be followed. Your drone must be registered with the FAA at faa.gov/uas for a nominal fee. You’ll be given an identification number which must be displayed clearly on an accessible area of your drone. Your drone must also weigh less than 55 pounds.

According to federal law, you cannot fly over national parks, military bases, stadiums or sporting events, emergency response efforts, within 5 miles of an airport (without prior registration), within 25 feet of another person, or higher than 400 feet. You must also stay under 100 miles per hour, keep the drone within your line of sight and be completely sober.

There are drone laws that vary by state, too, so check with your local law enforcement before liftoff.
