Hello Chandler. As a civilian UAV/RPA pilot and member of the AMA, as well as a videographer,Read MoreSAFETY is always my number one priority. Civilian UAV/RPA pilots NEVER fly over 400' and follow all AMA and FAA 'legal' requirements. I'm not sure how closely you follow the current 'civilian' UAV/RPA policies here in the USA, other than the sound-bites you hear on the TV or read in the newspaper, so I've included two interesting articles, one locally that outline what the current state of regulations are regarding civilian UAV/RPA piloting. Please keep in mind, there have been UAV/RPA pilots flying for over 25 years through the AMA with NO trouble from the FAA. I've also included a link to the AMA for your review. Again, SAFETY, is my top priority when offering my services to Realtors and homeowners who are desiring low-altitude aerial footage to use in their marketing material to help sell their homes. If, after you've read through the information in the links, please don't hesitate to contact me. Businesses embrace drones despite buzz of worry Article by: JIM BUCHTA , Star Tribune Updated: April 13, 2014 - 6:19 AM http://www.startribune.com/housing/255038911.html Drone Law Journal http://dronelawjournal.com/ Academy of Model Aeronautics - AMA http://www.modelaircraft.org/ **The AMA is the FAA's first choice when it will come time to manage civilian UAV/RPA registration. I hope "official" registration/licensing comes soon. A lot of kids are flying without supervision or training, endangering property and people. Again, please let me know if you need any further information. Cheers, Bill Holmquist Above U Productions aboveuproductions@gmail.com

Bill, Thank you for your insight. Perhaps some "Mythbusting" of what may be legal andRead Morewhat may not be legal: http://www.faa.gov/news/updates/?newsid=76240 I appreciate your commitment to safety, I just hope that privacy is also an equal commitment when it comes to commercial operators of UAV's. Best Regards Chandler

MISC COMMENT: No need to rush, I suspect that most users will have some problems with this site. Read MoreI have entered my own Activation Code 10 times over 2 days and it does nothing. The screen won't change. Hope you have better results but given that Tarbutt seems to have problems doing even simple things you might find you also have a dud site here. Did they use the ObamaCare web designers on this?

Just so you know, I just did my civic duty and de-pooped the path from MME to the overpass atRead MoreVinehi ll Road. Anything that could be dislodged and flipped or flung has been relocated. I now know more about what dogs eat than ever. Turns out, they eat a lot of hair balls. I'm just sayin...
