Here's my simple solution to the FAA UAS registration requirement:
I used my "Brother" label maker set to the smallest size, and affixed the label to the outer surface of the aft wing spar just ahead of the flap. The example shown is on my "FLY NAVY:" KingCat, but can be used on a variety of airframes.
Flaps "UP" and it is out of sight.....flaps "DOWN" and it is displayed as the FAA requires it.
Coating the balsa spar with 5 minute epoxy makes the balsa slick enough for the label to adhere.
