Mr. David Compton, Terrestrial Drone Services

Providing Comprehensive UAV Capabilities to Shasta County

When I met Mr. Compton, I was immediately impressed by the state-of-the-art UAV equipment TDS has acquired, as well as the depth of his operational expertise. Dave is a very practical, ethical, straight-shooter, and JCS is fortunate for the enhancement to our UAV capabilities that he has brought. Dana Hall, PE, CPI

The DJI Mini 3 Pro is the most capable lightweight drone with a wide range of shooting modes that you can use to create cinematic footage easily.
