    From the article: "CNN today announced an agreement with the FAA to work together to “get beyond hobby-grade equipment and to establish what options are available and workable to produce high quality video journalism using various types of UAVs and camera setups”. There is no detail about how this agreement will work in practice and whether CNN will actually be deploying their own drones routinely to news stories as part of this research."

    Maybe now they'll ease up on the sensationalism and shock-and-awe drone-bashing stories.

    Or maybe not.
