Agreed Nigel

You would have to keep a drone at least 50' high for safety reasons so people would be tiny. I have a hybrid stand which was my first stedicam docking stand which elevates up to nearly 3m and then I have "grafted" a standard 2 section lighting stand on top so I make just over 5m and that's normally more than enough. With the GoPro often as low as 2m gives the desired effect with the wide angle and brides love it too!

Not sure I agree that you need to fly so hi for safety reasons. I fly much lower around building and people depending on the environment. Also, GoPros are extremely wide, using an NEX with a 16mm looks great from about about 20-30 feet.

Unfortunately, this is for non-commercial use only.
There is work in progress to provide regulations for commercial use of RC aerial filming/photography.
This is scheduled to 2015 (or maybe even 2014).
You should be able to find all this info at the FAA website.
