Feb. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Megan Hughes reports on FAA rules and regulations regarding commercial drone use. She speaks on Bloomberg Television's "In The Loop." (Source: Bloomberg)

To let businesses know what they can do?

A huge source of frustration.

It seems to be a moving timeline.

For commercial use in limited airspace, rules were supposed to be out in 2011. now they're expected to be out in november.

We're waiting for final rules for incorporating drones into the airspace homologue with planes and helicopters.

I wonder if these drone companies are enjoying the fact that the rules are so vague right now, and there is no regulation.

We talked to a drone industry group about this.

They said quite the contrary.

You have a lot of people who want to bring their businesses to scale.

The representative we talked to said a lot of them are going overseas.

Overseas, drone use is a lot bigger than it is here.

It is much more widespread and permitted.

There's a lot of frustration there.

He said this is one example of an industry of manufacturers that are begging for regulation so they can have their businesses be legal here.

We will continue to follow what, in fact, they do.
