In a recent piece by Clarke Morrison, a journalist at the Mountain Xpress of Asheville, North Carolina, he discusses a core problem of the drone industry today.

Asheville Multimedia owner Bob Peck says he’s been using a drone to get what he calls an “establishing shot” for his wedding videos. But he’s careful not to violate the FAA ban.
