The NFL is now the first major U.S. sports league to gain approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to fly drones, but don't expect to see them during games.
Bloomberg reports NFL Films can use the drones to shoot films, documentaries and television segments inside the stadium, but the FAA is limiting their use to when there's no game going on. (Video via YouTube / MPFnB)
