Drones are going to be used to monitor crops, inspect train tracks and cover news stories in the US as part of a series of tests.

The US Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) said it would ask three firms to help it look into expanding drone use and would launch an app for pilots.

The US Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said the he wanted to see the widespread adoption of drones.

One expert said the plan strengthened the case for registering operators.

The announcement had mostly to do with BVLOS and investigating how to relax those restrictions. It's a small first step.
