New drone registration regulations take effect today

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- New government regulations for drones take effect today.

Drones weighing anywhere from half a pound to 50 pounds have to be registered online with the Federal Aviation Administration. Anything heavier will have to be registered on paper.

The fee to register a drone is $5, but the FAA will waive the fee for the first 30 days.

People caught with unregistered drones could face charges and jail time.
