Why would the FAA bother to keep bullying until it actually has regulations officially in place and punishments decided. They tried to fine Trappy and failed. Just because realtors can use remote control aircraft for pictures and video does not mean they will get the best results, professionals should still be used. Did you know a telescoping mast can get many of these same shots, it just not as cool.... Once regulations are officially in place there will only be select professionals that can do this anyway. Australia has something like 30 companies that can legally fly commercially.
Media has deemed these machines as drones or UAV to strike fear into the general public. Just because they have GPS and (hobby class) intelligent controls does not put them in the same class as military drones. If you use a remote control helicopter or airplane without all these special control options, adding a camera instantly classifies it as a drone? It is still a remote control off the shelf aircraft that can be purchased anywhere. Just because they will regulate them commercially does not mean it will reduce the amount of people operating them any where they want. Fewer 'pilots' attend actually flying fields than ever before, not to mention those that are flying 'drones' most likely don't have any idea how to manually fly the same aircraft even if it were a life or death situation. I met a realtor flying a Phantom that was bragging he'd never flown any remote control before, and it only took 3 minutes to learn.... That is where the problems will originate, not the multiple year professionals that know what their doing.
I wouldn't scare anyone from flying, but recommend getting the proper training before doing so.
