The Washington Nationals are in hot water with the FAA for their use of a UAV to take pictures of the team during spring training. The UAV was reportedly used without the FAA’s permission and was considered a commercial use. The team used a small four-rotor drone to hover above the players and capture promotional pictures of the team in practice. AUVSI President Michael Toscano indicated respect for the FAA’s deference to safety in its deliberate pace of rulemaking but suggested that the technology has outpaced the regulatory aspects. The Nationals could face a $10,000 fine. (Image Credit: Washington Nationals/Donald Miralle, Instagram)
