Drones Cleared For Commercial Use

The FAA today has announced new rules and regulations around the commercial use of Drones. This is huge news for anyone out there who legally was unable to make money with their drone unless they had a 333 expedition which meant you needed a pilots license. http://froknowsphoto.com/drones-cleared-for-commercial-use/

This is all about to change thanks to the new rules that will be going into effect shortly. You can read a summery of thehttp://www.faa.gov/uas/media/Part_107_Summary.pdf

Here are my main takeaways.

No 333 Exemption Needed
Take a test to be certified for 24 months.
DRONE must weight less than 55 pounds
Must be visual in line of site
400 feet max altitude
Daylight flying only
Maximum ground speed of 100 miles and hour
Must not fly over any person not directly participating in the flight.

    Okay can someone answer me or send me an article, I have a question. Is flying a drone for recreational use legal or do you also need a license or something along those lines? I’ve been meaning to get one but it’s not until today I heard this news, do I need a license or just fly it around?

    Hope this comes to the uk, great idea

  3. PremierReviewer on September 30, 2020 at 11:32 am

    This is great News

  4. Danny on September 30, 2020 at 11:32 am

    There are so many people that will benefit from this! It’s great that we can now film footage that would normally cost us thousands of dollars for only a couple hundred.

    Actually, you clearly haven’t bought a gun ….. the mental health bit is right on the form 4473 that you fill out when you purchase a gun.

  6. MaDronePilot on September 30, 2020 at 11:36 am

    This is awesome! I started a series for part 107 of 14 CFR. I’m a certificated pilot and this stuff is interesting to me. I already took the online training.

    He will never get a girlfriend.

  8. Matt Kinney on September 30, 2020 at 11:37 am

    Can not have a disability? Why dos that matter? So i have one but i can fly a drone! !

  9. Rex0915 on September 30, 2020 at 11:39 am

    You pass a background check to buy a gun don’t fall into the BS bro. Good news for drones.

  10. nolen1957 on September 30, 2020 at 11:39 am

    Here is the Federal form you must fill out to buy a gun from a dealer in the United States. Note that you are asked about mental health history. https://www.atf.gov/file/61446/download

    That’s a lot of regulation for a fucking drone, but a gun? NO!!!

  12. Joe Jupiter on September 30, 2020 at 11:44 am

    So apparently drones are more dangerouse than guns.
    Just imagine how many people more would have died in Orlando if Omar Mateen had a drone.

  13. exit159 on September 30, 2020 at 11:45 am

    I enjoy your stuff but I think that it’s absolutely ridiculous that you turned this into a discussion about guns …. really? Just stick to topics that you actually know something about and we will continue to enjoy what you do rather than tuning out for someone else.

  14. PulseLX on September 30, 2020 at 11:48 am

    yea you need a mental check to fly drones but not for guns thats mind blowing to me

  15. Jericho Rosas on September 30, 2020 at 11:48 am

    Fuck the FAA…

  16. Seal on September 30, 2020 at 11:50 am

    Not being allowed to fly near people who are unaware of the drone makes it basically useless in many places. I think there should be regulations on drone manufacturers for safety and mandatory lessons for flying in order to get a license to use one at all. That way they can give permission to people to fly in populated places, otherwise how would anyone ever film in NYC? Do they expect the real pilots license for that? Not just NYC but pretty much any city, even national parks will have people in them and nearby.

  17. Andre Lindo on September 30, 2020 at 11:51 am

    I’m guessing this is only for the USA

  18. venom5809 on September 30, 2020 at 11:51 am

    I would kill for late night drone delivery of cheesecake and sushi.

  19. Soldier53flyer on September 30, 2020 at 11:53 am

    What about all the news out lets doing it now?

  20. John Wires on September 30, 2020 at 11:55 am

    how about you people complain that the government is again infringing on your rights this license thing for drones is ridiculous

  21. Seth Burrow’s Masks and Stuff on September 30, 2020 at 11:55 am

    GODDAMMIT MARTHA! GO GET MY SHOTGUN!

  22. King of Procrastination on September 30, 2020 at 12:01 pm

    I’m little late to the party. My question is: Is it already commercial if the drone footage is shown in a monetized youtube video?

  23. Adapt FPV on September 30, 2020 at 12:01 pm

    So if someone has ADHD or something similar they cant fly commercially?

  24. Parker Creates on September 30, 2020 at 12:03 pm

    Woahh!!!! Yay!!

  25. OddOnian on September 30, 2020 at 12:04 pm

    "just follow the rules and don’t be stupid" just lost 95% of youtube vlogers….

  27. Living With The Guzmans on September 30, 2020 at 12:06 pm

    Good news thanks

  28. EyeCaptureImages on September 30, 2020 at 12:08 pm

    Jared, would you consider yourself ineligible to fly a drone commercially due to your vision limitation? Even if you’re perfectly capable of flying and have done so in the past, that last regulation you mentioned may prevent you from doing so. What are your thoughts?

  29. Christopher Newman on September 30, 2020 at 12:08 pm

    What I’m curious about is, how the hell are they going to regulate or enforce the "line of sight" rule? I get and accept the rule itself, but how are they going to prove or need proof that the operator had line of sight of the craft the entire time? I mean, the op can just say, yes… I did. I know they can check the footage, but that’s not always reliable in this context. Meaning, the camera isn’t pointing at the op usually, so it would be difficult, if not impossible to tell if the op had LOS… Just my opinion.

  30. JRESHOW on September 30, 2020 at 12:09 pm

    Thanks for the info Fro! That’s great news! Can’t wait to take my test and get certified.

  31. UltraRmx on September 30, 2020 at 12:12 pm

    How does Cassy Neistat get away flying his drone in NYC etc?

  32. Alejandro Alvarez on September 30, 2020 at 12:13 pm

    Well you’re not really free to fly with all these regulations and laws. But yea i get what you’re saying.

  33. Emil B on September 30, 2020 at 12:14 pm

    I had no idea about these rules and laws in the US. How the fudge does Casey Neistat get away with all his droning?

  34. T.B.Photo on September 30, 2020 at 12:15 pm

    Are you going to try the new Hasselblad X1D-50c?
    Anny thoughts?

  35. Michael Andersen on September 30, 2020 at 12:15 pm

    Hope Australia will follow soon,,,

  36. tony rowland on September 30, 2020 at 12:17 pm

    And why would a police record stop you? Hell just buy it and fly it. How are they going to prove what you use it for?

  37. Simon Bauer on September 30, 2020 at 12:17 pm

    Anyone else get the certificate before this came out ?

  38. dphotos on September 30, 2020 at 12:18 pm

    The whole reason for these rules if because of the stupid idiot RC pilots that flew their aircrafts in a dangerous manner. Many posted their stupid feats on YouTube such as flying at 6000 feet in commercial air space and flying dangerously over people’s heads. These problems were never a big problem in the RC world until these cheaper Drones started flying.with GPS allowing just about anyone to fly them with little or no experience.

  39. BillNicholsTV on September 30, 2020 at 12:19 pm

    Big news for today – Rules are very reasonable overall. They took awhile but did a good job overall. On the yielding to aircraft, in areas where there is a lot of tourist (beaches, etc) there are often low flying helicopters, totally common sense.

  40. Matthew White on September 30, 2020 at 12:20 pm

    I reckon a lot of Jared’s fanbase supports guns so they’ll probably get a bit touchy at that comment at 2:30.

  41. Alan Doktor on September 30, 2020 at 12:22 pm

    Ow big news!

  42. dame on September 30, 2020 at 12:24 pm

    2:27 it got political. I like it when it gets political.

    Thank you 😀

  45. Sinky on September 30, 2020 at 12:27 pm

    USA only?

  46. Bikkuri_mk on September 30, 2020 at 12:27 pm

    "Any physical or mental conditions" is kinda BS. So if someone has an illness, is medicated and fully functional otherwise, they cannot fly a drone?

  47. Inquisitve m on September 30, 2020 at 12:27 pm

    realtors and wedding photographers/videographers will love this

  48. K3V0M on September 30, 2020 at 12:28 pm

    Damn Obama drones! *bang* *bang*

  49. shrededpudding on September 30, 2020 at 12:29 pm

    racing drones can go well over 100 mph.
