US: The Ames-based Hunziker & Associates are among the first in Iowa to receive federal authorisation to fly a commercial drone. According to Ames Tribune, Hunziker has purchased a DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ drone, which can shoot high-resolution video and still images. The drone will be able to capture exterior views of houses, subdivisions and their surroundings for potential customers, as well as be used internally to improve company planning and development efforts. The drone will fly around the exterior of a house to scan the surroundings and give a better idea about the neighbourhood, stated Justin Dodge, Hunziker's development coordinator.
