Great infographic from all digital:

As exciting as drones are proving for both hobbyists and commercial filmmakers, local and federal governments in the United States are continuously enacting legislation that governs the use of drones for shooting video.

Filmmakers and video production professionals need to pay particular attention to the rules because the FAA requires anyone using drones for commercial purposes to get special permission to do so.

  1. The info graphic is wrong, the registration number belongs to the operator not the drone. In that way the registration number is not unique. If you operate more than one drone, they will all have the same registration number on them. So far the FAA has failed to explain what to do if you are operating someone else’s drone. The AMA is a good source for information about this topic. http://www.modelaircraft.org/
