Frequently asked questions

Why Texoma Drone Solutions LLC?


We want you to stand out and to offer something unique. If you're listing a home for sale, we want help you make your ad stand out from the rest. A great way to show off large properties is with aerial photos and video. If you have a special event coming, why settle for the same old standard photos? A birds-eye-view will give you a whole new perspective and allow you to see things that would be missed in ground based photos and video.




Why should I hire Texoma Drone Solutions LLC when my friend has a drone and will take pictures for free?


Odds are your friend isn't a licensed drone pilot. The FAA has been cracking down on un-licensed drone pilots and that comes with hefty fines for anyone who hires an un-licensed drone pilot as well as for the pilot of the drone themselves. Anyone who hires an un-licensed drone pilot can be fined up to $11,000 while the pilot can be fined up to $1,100. If you use your own drone to take photos of a property you are selling, and you're not FAA licensed, you are liable for both fines. This fine is per violation. So if you have 3 listings with aerial photos not shot by a licensed drone pilot, you could face fines up to $36,300!

Can a realtor get into trouble for hiring a non-licensed drone photographer?


The short answer: YES! Federal law prohibits anyone from flying drones in furtherance of a business or for any kind of compensation, unless they hold a valid FAA remote pilot license. If your photographer is providing "aerial" photos using a drone, make sure they are Part 107 licensed! Both a photographer and the person who hires them can recieve very steep fines for commercially operating a drone without a license from the FAA. The simplest way to verify a license is to simply ask the pilot to see their license.




Can Texoma Drone Solutions LLC fly at night?


Yes! Due to changes in drone regulations and a newly acquired license by TDS, we are now legally allowed to conduct night operations.
