Would be interesting to know if the FAA is actually cracking down on this.
Beware of Amazon: using their permissions for BVLOS the whole of a new rail route (150 miles) has been flown using drones:
Quite why it wasn't done by a manned aircraft I don't know, but the firm doing the flying appear to have multi-million euro backing. You don't need a surveyor if you have sufficient cash.
I suspect that a Real Estate Agent hired someone to fly a listing because I found the remains of a DJ Phantom in the back yard yesterday. They may have gotten cute and tried to buzz the dog because he was playing catch with the camera when I spotted it. i hope they were charging enough to cover the loss of their drone because Duke ate it.
