Licensed drone services providing aerial data and high quality photography & video

Hello, I'm Dave, the Harley-riding husband of the Artist known as Becky. As Executive Director of Flatwillow Creek Studios, besides supporting my lovely wife, I'm also the Chief Drone Pilot and take some of the pictures Becky produces into art work and paintings. I am an FAA-certified Part 107 sUAS pilot with a handful of hours on the stick. I specialize in REP, that's Real Estate Photography, and am looking forward to branching out to more commercial aerial photography opportunities including property survey, wind tower exams, power line exams, crime scene and accident investigations, search and rescue operations, and more. If I can be of assistance, please email me at dsdobbins@flatwillowcreekstudios.com, or call me at 406-468-5130.

Meet my Drones: Two DJI drones, a Mavic Pro and Phantom 4. Both drones have HD quality cameras and can capture both still images and video photography. Under FAA Part 107 Rules, I'm allowed to fly the drones to an elevation of 400 feet above ground level. That's generally plenty high enough for real estate and other property photography. While the range of these drones extend over 3-4 miles from the transmitter, I prefer to keep the drones visible to me (VLOS), generally not more than 300-400 yards from the transmitter. The controller includes a map that pinpoints the drones location and allows for automatic return to launch location should the battery power run down to a low level. Becky often fills the role of Visual Observer (VO) to make each flight as safe as possible. I am permitted to fly during all hours of the day as I've been granted a Daylight Waiver by the FAA (Part 107.29). That may come in handy helping find missing cows and people, or supporting emergency response to accidents or fires, if called upon. I've been flying drones since 2015, but my radio control air force includes planes and helicopters I've been flying off and on for over 30 years. 

 

The Missouri River winds through scenic canyons near Cascade, Montana. This is a Mavic Pro photo from about 150 ft up.

 

Highway 278 leading into quaint Jackson, Montana, home of Jackson Hot Springs Lodge and the Buffalo Gal Hat Company. This is also a Mavic Pro photo from a video clip into Jackson. The hot springs here are great!

 

OK, it's not a drone pic, but rather a 180 degree panoramic near Elkhorn, Montana on a beautiful summer day.
