Your drone isn't going to be regulated like an airplane any longer - the court ruling that just changed what you have to do to fly a drone:
Bottom Line: To some it seemed like overkill to have all drone owners register their devices with the FAA. On the other hand having drones in airspace that might be occupied by airplanes and helicopters is pretty serious. Nevertheless as of today you no longer have to have your drone, used for non-commercial purposes, registered with the FAA without risking a federal offense.
On Friday a federal appeals court ruled that the FAA lacks the ability to regulate "model aircraft" under current law. So unless the Supreme Court picks up the case and reverses the order (which legal experts believe is highly unlikely), you're free to use your drone for pleasure free of federal regulation, that is, provided that you don't actually mess with something that is in regulated airspace (500 feet+).
