Dronetag has launched Dronetag Basic Solution (BS), a new drone device that is believed to be the most affordable Remote ID solution that complies with new Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) standards. 

According to Dronetag, the number of hobby and FPV pilots in the US is steadily growing, however, it is thought that very few of them own aircraft that comply with the FAA’s Remote ID policy coming into effect on September 16, 2023.

Dronetag, which specializes in devices for professional pilots, unmanned air traffic integrators and drone manufacturers, launched the new Basic Solution to help amateur pilots easily upgrade their drones to fly in compliance with new FAA rules. 

Dronetag BS is a compact, user-friendly device that anyone can easily install in any drone to eliminate the stress of the changing regulatory environment.

The device, weighing only 0.105 oz with antennas, is designed to meet the basic Remote ID requirements following the latest aviation regulations by FAA. Dronetag BS provides real-time tracking and identification, ensuring drone enthusiasts can fly safely and responsibly. Users will get subscription-free access to a Dronetag multi-platform mobile app that allows them to check the airspace zones, plan flights, browse real-time flight data, inspect other airborne drones and stay notified about any hazards around them.

“Dronetag’s mission is to make drone flying accessible, safe, and enjoyable for everyone, and our device Dronetag BS is a major leap forward in that direction,” said Lukas Brchl, CEO of Dronetag. “We are confident that this product will prove to be a game-changer in the industry, making it easier than ever for aeromodelers and FPV pilots to comply with regulations while enjoying their favorite hobby. Maybe the honest name of this device will even make their day; who knows.”

Customers can get the new device on May 22, 2023, for a one-time price of $49 if they preorder on that day. The official retail price will then start at $89. 

The Dronetag BS launch will happen during the Xponential 2023 conference in Colorado, US (May 9-11, 2023).
