(CNN) — Toy drones strapped with cameras are becoming a big draw with amateur photographers.

The unmanned aerial vehicles can capture a unique bird’s eye view of the landscape.

The video above gives you a look at the UAVs at work.

Since the Federal Aviation Administration’s 2007 warning not to use drones for commercial purposes, there’s been some debate and confusion in the hobbyist community about what you can and can’t do with aerial photography

So before you go out with a ready-made drone, remember to keep it lower than 400 feet above ground, stay away from the airport, and make sure to learn the rules in your state.
