Cannot do Lidar or crop dusting in a PC aircraft by default. Can rent and do training in a PC aircraft if certain conditions are met. Basically completely maintained by a certified FAA mechanic or a repair station. Best to talk to Light Aircraft Branch in Kansas city or Operations in Oklahoma if you have any doubts

With regard to aerial video and photography. Many manufacturers of experimental aircraft use material taken from their aircraft for marketing purposes. What is understood about the regs in these cases? Also what would the rules be say using an experimental aircraft to shoot video that is used after the fact for commercial purposes say for a movie.

For a long time, the FAA has looked at the purpose of the mission. If a movie-maker or manufacturer is taking off with the intent to conduct commercial photography, it's usually a no-no. But if the photos or videos were incidental to the mission and later found valuable for sale, it's usually not a problem.

In the case of in-flight photos of aircraft used by the manufacturer, they were obviously likely taken by a third party.
