The first thing you should do is to have it registered. Drones that weighs 8.8 ounces or less are not required to be registered, but it is still best to do so if you will be adding weights to it making it around 8.9 to 55 pound.

You will also be required to provide a credit or a debit card, a home address and an email address. You will be given a registration number that is needed to be labeled on your Drone before it flies.
