stipe Posted January 30, 2014 Share Posted January 30, 2014 Interesting article from a major american surfing magazine about the use of drone sin photography and videos... "According to Ian Gregor, a spokesperson for the FAA, when it comes to recreational photography and videography captured from a drone—so if you’re not going to sell it—you’re in the green. The FAA only has a problem if you’re trying to profit from it. “As long as video [captured by a drone] is solely for their personal use, the FAA considers it to be recreational. Recreational use of airspace by model aircraft by hobbyists is covered by FAA Advisory Circular 91-57, which limits model aircraft operations to below 400 feet above ground level and away from airports and air traffic,” said Gregor. “But if the same person flies the same aircraft and then tries to sell the video, or uses it to promote a business, or accepts payments from someone else to shoot the video, that would be a prohibited commercial operation.” http://www.surfermag.com/features/drones/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
