For every Indie filmmaker to be able to go over and beyond in getting beautiful footage, drones could play a big part in making that happen. Radio-controlled drones have been a dream of Indie filmmakers and photographers for some time now. Commercial drones have been used around the world for many purpose such as surveillance, rel estate footage just to name a few. Most recently drones have brought about protests, debates, and even concerns over privacy. Currently using drones for commercial purposes is illegal. The FAA does not want you making money off your drone. You can fly your drone and take pictures or video for personal use. This puts a hold on using your drone for Indie filmmaking, which I am concerned about. I think in the long run after everything is said and done the FAA should allow permits for using your drone for commercial use at a reasonable fee. This should include filmmaking, rel estate photography, TV and news gathering. Hobbyist should be exempted. WHAT DO YOU THINK
