I thought a judge overturned the commercial use ban?

I await the FAA's condemnation of the people who made that Superman/GoPro video from a few days ago, which was almost entirely dependent on one of these.

My friend recently bought the exact same model as the one in the picture to use to photograph boats he has for sale.

I bet he's happy right about now.

I can't wait for the day when flying drones are abundant. I'm getting bored shooting clay pigeons all the time.

I tried it last year but I ended up ignoring it in favor of another fantasy league. If you cant get anyone else to join by Saturday, I would be happy to give it another shot.

Everytime I read a joke about Barry Bonds, he just hits another home run.

Bill Belichick will definitely be incorporating drone technology into his playbook this year.
