Re: License for drones (Which Drone)

Everything you want to know about drones and regulations can be found on YouTube.

This guy talks a lot about regulations as well as drones:

If you don't want to deal with FAA registration you need to buy a drone that weighs less than 250 grams. The best camera drone for that IMO is the DJI mini 2:

If you want to go above 250 grams the best value IMO for photo drone is the DJI Mavic Air 2. You have to register with the FAA but there is no test.

I own a Mavic Air 2 and it has the technology for Remote Identification built in, so when the Remote ID regulations go into effect in a couple of years it will be in compliance.
