Drones Survey Iowa Farmland

MARTENSDALE, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - An Iowa-based real estate group is using drones to get a birds eye view of the state's land.
With a flip of a switch, Des Moines based Peoples Company is flying the drones over the state to get a better sense of what the farmland looks like.
One farmer in Martensdale says the technology is helping in a lot of ways; looking at his land through the drones eye, he's been able to see what areas were recently flooded and he can even see what areas are ready to harvest.
The FAA only has a few rules for drones right now: they can't fly higher than four hundred feet and must weigh less than 55 pounds.
As drones become more popular, the FAA is beginning to regulate them more, and is expected to release a set of rules next year.
