WASHINGTON, DC -- Looks like the hottest gift of the season might be going up in smoke. Safety concerns continue to mount over the very popular hover boards.

It's been widely reported the board's lithium-ion batteries can easily overheat and burst into flames. There have been 11 reported cases across the country to date.

Well, it looks like the smoke alarmed Amazon and the online retailer pulled them off their site. So, you might want to consider scratching that off your list. After all, if you really want to get off the ground, it's all about the drone!

So, you might want to consider scratching that off your list. After all, if you really want to get off the ground, it's all about the drone! But before you take flight, the Federal Aviation Administration just announced some new rules for drone owners. You'll have to register that remote controlled aircraft in a national database starting December 21st.

So anyone who has a drone waiting for them under the tree will be required to register before they can take their drone for a spin. Registration is free for the first 30 days. After that, it'll cost you five dollars for a three-year certificate.

This Christmas, the real gift might be keeping safe.
