I think you've got until some time in March. There's an FAA NPR that's going to require internet connection to fly. That means you'll need a monthly subscription for each individual drone to relay all your flight information in real time directly to the FAA. All your information,.....who you are, where you are, what you're doing. No internet connection,.....no fly. Only exception will be a few 'free fly' boxes set off in the weeds scattered around the country if/when someone puts in the effort to establish them.
