Self-built drones and quads?

I can see that it would be straightforward to require a licence to buy a fully-built drone or quad, and to have every one of them fitted with some sort of RFID or similar (would need greater distance) identifying it and thus its owner, but you will get DIY types building their own and flying them and relishing that "The Man" can't stop them. All you can do there is have serious punishment for them if caught -- if they are caught. I could see some lumpen basement-dweller bringing down a passenger plane, threatening his Mum upstairs not to breathe a word, and quietly going about his business, undetected.
