Using a Drone to Build a Case
In the March/April issue of RotorDrone Pro magazine – on newsstands now! – you can find an article about how we used aerial imagery captured by an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) to help build a case during a recent land-use lawsuit in Rockaway Beach, Oregon.
The article is written by my good friend and expert drone pilot Patrick Sherman of the Roswell Flight Test Crew, who flew the mission. In the article, he describes the technical aspects of how he conducted the flights safely and within the rules and regulations of FAA’s 14 CFR Part 107, and how the imagery helped to tell our client's story.
We prevailed in the lawsuit on the merits and, in addition even more recently, we won the right to recover more than $200,000 in attorneys and expert fees. I’ve called Patrick in to help with other cases since. His very fine drone imagery helps to tell a compelling story!
