Although a final set of rules have not yet been decided, the aviation regulators are likely to subject only those models that weigh more than 25 kilograms (55 pounds) to flight safety scrutiny, said Xu Chaoqun, an official in charge of airworthiness certification at the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).
