LAPD Cracks Down on Drone Use by Real Estate Agents

January 27, 2012  | 

The Los Angeles Police Department is warning real estate agents not to use images of properties taken from unmanned aircraft, saying the flying drones pose a potential safety hazard and could violate federal aviation policy.

The warning was issued this week after officers saw a television news report showing a basketball-sized object with multiple rotors hovering over an expansive Westside residence, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Not LAPD jurisdiction. RC helicopters are flown below 200ft. It is illegal for LAPD or News copters to fly below 400ft so there is no potential conflict with RC copters. LA FILM is pushing this. Go catch some real criminals instead of small business people trying to put bread on the table.
