UK drone pilots have until the end of November to register their details with the Civil Aviation Authority.
The mandatory requirement to register covers owners of drones or model aircraft weighing more than 250g (8.8oz). Owners of unregistered drones could then face the threat of a fine.
At the same time, the CAA is starting a service it hopes will reunite owners with their lost drones. A quarter of owners have lost a drone at some point, CAA research suggests.
