Drone registration will ensure that operators are made aware of their responsibilities and undertake to conduct their activities in a responsible manner, said Minister of State for Transport Lam Pin Min

Personally I welcome this move by the government to ensure that the limited airspace of Singapore remains safe. As UAVs gets cheaper and easier to fly, many forget that they are not a toys and are capable of causing serious injuries or damages. However, will this move slow down the adoption of UAVs in Singapore as new tools for business?
