FAA: No, you won't need to pay someone to register your drone

You may not like the idea of having to register your drone to fly it in the US, but you likely won't need to pay someone to handle the paperwork. The Federal Aviation Administration is telling would-be flyers to think twice before signing up with any company that promises to register your drone for a fee. You can "probably" do it yourself whenever the program kicks in, the FAA says, and the process won't be much different than registering products with their manufacturers. In short, anyone asking for your money right now is an opportunist -- they're hoping that your aversion to filling out forms overcomes your rational side.
