Do all countries have similar regulations?



No, I've operated UAS in Norway with blessings from their Government.

Commercially?

-----


Yes. We were filming a snowboard competition.

What kind of cameras did you use? Was it a live stream?

-----


We had standard def camera live streaming video via an L3 video transmitter. Also had an HD camera that recorded to onboard media.

I know of someone (here in Norway) trying to build up a business doing precisely this (filming things, such as snowboard and ski events) via a remote-controlled helicopter.

It sounds like a cool project.

I read an article about the U.K. testing the waters with looser regs: http://spectrum.ieee.org/automaton/robotics/military-robots/...

Does anyone know if something like this would be legal in Canada? That seems like a really cool startup idea.
