The Motion Picture Association of America is a big fan of drones — or, officially, “unmanned aerial systems.” The organization asked the Federal Aviation Administration yesterday to make it easier for directors to use drones in filming.
Another big fan of drones? Martha Stewart.
Drones are trending.

She has written a piece for Time, called “Why I Love My Drone.”
Someone gave her one last summer as a gift. And, we learn, her mind “started racing” as she “imagined all the different applications” for it.
Stewart and her staff have been taking drone pictures of her beach house in Maine and her farm in New York.
“An aerial shot of the vegetable garden looked very much like my Peter Rabbit marzipan embellished Easter cake,” she writies. “Which was designed without the help of a drone.”
