Since 2013 I've been on a continuous search to add reliable, high quality Aerial Photography to my clients in the San Juan Islands (Lopez Island, Shaw Island, Orcas Island, the Non-Ferry Islands and Friday Harbor, San Juan Island). In that effort, I've worked my way through the DJI drone line starting with the Phantom 1, then the Phantom 2 Vision, then the Phantom 3 Professional, then the Mavic Pro and finally the Mavic 2 Pro. And it safe to say that being an early adapter, aka "beta tester", for DJI was a frustrating and expensive experience.
In addition to waiting for DJI's drones to become a working tool, there was also a long wait while the FAA created the path to become a licensed UAV, drone, operator. Fortunately all of that is old news and the combination of my FAA Part 107 UAV license and the Mavic 2 Pro allows me to offer a high quality Architectural, Real Estate, and Commercial Aerial Photography / Photographer service.
Here is the detailed list of my current aerial gear.
