AGRICULTURE DRONES ARE FINALLY CLEARED FOR TAKEOFF. “Tech-savvy farmers have been some of the earliest commercial adopters of drone technology, purchasing 45,000 drones last year alone. But if they were using the drones to check on the condition of their fields, spraying their crops, or keeping tabs on livestock, most of them were technically breaking the law. New U.S. federal rules that went into effect this summer, however, should make it easier for farmers to get a drone’s-eye view of their fields.”

I think you should be able to fly a drone over your own property without permission from the feds, at least as long as you stay below 500 feet.
