If you are planning on flying commercially in the USA, ie take photos for money from your platforms. You really ought to be a member of RCAPA and follow their very simple guidelines.
Of course right now you cannot turn a dime selling aerial photos but that might change soon.
I would suggest that all DIYD members use them and perhaps supplement with the excellent BMFA Up up and Away publication http://www.bmfa.org/publications/files/EUA.zip
There is a Facebook page as well.
They are the only group fighting for sUAS in the NAS in America.
The others just don't care and are very busy throwing small companies under the bus!
2012 will be the year of some changes, unless you are part of the conversation and push for sensible rules you can expect some tough times.
This post will give you a flavour of what they are upto.
We hope to be able to put out some information on proposed standards for airframes shortly.
All the fuss about rule changes by January is based on the NPRM process which was slated to start in January but if you follow sUAS News you will know that has been put back many many times. I abandoned the countdown timer on the top right of the home page as changing it all the time became dull.
sUAS News believes the process will now start April/May then go into 90 days of comments.
This may well change.
Now is the time to get ready. They cannot hold this process back many more times. The big boys are facing reduced sales to the military and they need to start the civil push.
