Drone Risk Ram recently discussed the risks real estate companies face with drones.

SAN FRANCISCO—The real estate industry is one of the leading adopters of drones as businesses look at more efficient ways of photographing listings, in addition to planning and surveying developments. At the end of last month, new FAA regulations took effect, making it easier for companies to use drones for commercial purposes.

The new regulation, Part 107, applies to commercial drone use, not hobby or recreational drones. The changes have been awaited by the unmanned aerial systems (UAS) community for years, and make entry into the commercial drone market substantially easier.
