Commercial versus recreational drone flying…

“If I am flying for my own pleasure, and I later sell the video or photographs that I took; does that mean that the flight, was in fact, a commercial flight?”  This is a question that many people have asked.

The rules are connected with the UAS operator’s intentions at the time of the flight.  

Therefore, a drone operator who does not hold a Commercial UAS Certificate, can sell his or her footage and/or photographs after the fact, if the flight itself was conducted for recreational purposes.
