It's not live yet. This is what was noted on the FAA page dealing with the registration:

The FAA Small UAS registry is expected to go live during the day on December 21.

Keep in mind they might not have given a specific time as some malcontents were suggesting that everyone purposefully try to register at the same time and crash the system, as if this juvenile act of civil disobedience would teach the "man" about...what exactly? Bizarre behavior for adults.

Anyway, check back here throughout the day, I'm sure the will have a link updated.

I found it a few minutes ago. Thank you for the reply, however.
At this point I am now calling the local tattoo shops and will have the certificate tattooed to my arse in the hope a Federal official will ask to see it sometime.

I just registered. I have to say it was the most unduly burdensome four minute 20 odd seconds of my life; I understand now why AMA is fighting it so much, it was very traumatizing.

Still nothing.............. I went here: https://registermyuas.faa.gov/register I knew I would crash the site!

After going back to it and reloading the page for the fourth time, I was able to proceed. Very easy.

I thought the AMA suggested that we not register until further notice from AMA. Is this not correct?

Correct, that was their suggestion, which of course met with immediate scorn, second guessing, and naturally, criticism. Because AMA. But ultimately it's a personal choice, it's up to you! I don't see the harm in doing it now, or waiting a week or so. Personally I was curious what it looked like and how smooth it would run.

And I thought that if I got my request in early, I would get a simple number. What I got was something that looks like Supermans foe Mister Mxyzptlk. I guess I will have to learn to write small.

I used my Dymo label maker to make up a couple dozen labels. I used Ariel 10 font and the number is only about an inch long and 1/8" high.

Do you feel any different? Has the hobby come to an end for you? Expecting the jack boots of the FAA goons to show up at your field this week? Or are you going to keep enjoying the hobby as you had before today?

Five minutes and its done. Digging out the Dymo Labelmaker and some clear tape. Will put AMA number and FAA on same tiny label.

No big deal and no need to fret. Have models to work on in the shop.

All my toys are now legal, good until December 2018. Tempers ought to have been soothed by then, although there's some doubt in my mind. The process was very easy to follow, a trait in web pages the government usually avoids. Of course, the site requires that you register drones, no mention of airplanes, and that tends to cause a knot in my drawers.
