It's a bird; it's a plane; nope it's just a drone
I read a good article this week : http://www.inman.com/next/drone-technology-helps-agents-sell-houses/ about the use of drones for real estate photography. Currently in the US; the FAA does not allow the use of drones for commercial purposes. Our neighbor to the north; Canada - does allow their use; although heavily regulated.
There has been a push for the FAA to lesson these restrictions. I'm sure over time; they will find a way to allow certain uses for drones. Real Estate photography is certainly one great use. Here is one great example. have also seen Home Inspectors use them. Think of those roofs that are too high for the average ladder. A home inspector won't climb that high; you need to pay for a specialized roofer - typically a crew of two for safely reasons. That's a big added expense. What if the inspector could have a close; video taped examination of your roof and gutters.
Time will tell what the fate of drones are; but I suspect it is just a matter of time.
