I received an interesting email from the California Realtor Association this week. It was warning Realtors in the Los Angeles area to not use unmanned aircraft to take aerial photos. I guess some agents are using remote controlled airplanes with cameras attached to take photos of higher end properties.
Turns out that there is a FAA regulation that allows people to fly remote control airplanes as a hobby but they can’t be used for commercial purposes. A few years ago, I was looking how to do this since camera technology has progressed so much. I’m glad I didn’t spend too much time (and money) pursuing that.
