Drones for commercial use

Flying for Fun

FAA is now allowing people to file for exemption to fly a UAV (Drone) for commercial purposes (through April 24 2015).  I am excited for the new possibilities.  To not be able to use a Drone for commercial purposes is ridiculous and is one of my biggest frustrations.  Our country is about “free enterprise”. Someone can film or take photos from a camera, but you put it on a drone and now you can’t sell it in any way.  Maybe I would feel better if someone could show me where on the FAA web site that it tells  the reasoning for this?   Yes… we need to fly responsibly, but to not be able to make a profit from the photos taken is ridiculous!   Not even from monetizing them on Youtube.  This is an article on the AMA web site regarding a company that was contacted by the FAA for monetizing their video on Youtube.  http://amablog.modelaircraft.org/amagov/2015/03/27/wiley-rein-faa-grounding-commercial-uas-on-websites-youtube/#comment-1652 (more…)
