Nevermind the ‘extension‘ that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) just provided for other drone manufacturers, many DJI drones such as the DJI Mavic 3, Avata, Air2S, Mini 3 Pro, M30, Microdrones, and the WingtraOne Gen II are already in compliance for Remote ID!
The list of drones that are approved by the FAA to be in compliance with Remote ID for Drones and Operations Over People can be found here.
The list includes the following drones:
These drones have the status ‘accepted’ from the FAA, and the list was last updated today. For all the other drone manufacturers that are still working on getting their Declaration of Compliance approved by the FAA, the agency promised not to enforce the rule until December 16, 2022.
It seems that the first DJI drone to receive the Remote ID Declaration of Compliance was the DJI Mini 3 Pro with RID Tracking #: RID000000001, which was received on August 12, 2022, it appears.
What are the important Remote ID for Drones deadlines?
There are two important dates for Remote ID for Drones.
September 16, 2022: Drone manufacturers must comply with Remote ID as of this date, meaning that all drones produced by a drone maker must comply with standard RID, although the FAA will not take any enforcement action until December 16, 2022.
September 16, 2023: You will not be allowed to fly your drone after this day unless you have a drone that complies with the Remote ID requirements, you fly exclusively at an FRIA, or you fly a sub-250-gram drone recreationally. The September 16, 2023 date will not change due to the non-enforcement of Remote ID for Drones until December 16, 2022.
