FAA registration for QAV250

For a QAV250 do we need to register this with the FAA? it is over .55 pounds but do they consider that a drone?

Thanks for any insight

If it is over the limit mentioned register yourself. It is not that complicated. If it is capable of sustained flight and is over 8 ounces registration is for yourself not the vehicle. Your FA number is then applied to all vehicles you fly over 8 ounces and less than 55 pounds. Takes less than five minutes to complete. ed

Does it leave the ground? Do you control it with a transmitter? Are you in the USA? If you answered yes to those then you need to register with the FAA.
