About Up Down Drone

Frank Hagen is the owner/operator of UpDown Drone.

Since childhood, Frank has been interested in new technology and photography. Born and raised in Oregon, Frank has traveled to all corners of Oregon and enjoys seeing this beautiful state from a new perspective. He left Oregon for three years to serve in the US Army, then returned and worked in law enforcement for over thirty years. During this time, he explored innovative technologies, provided photography and videography for a variety of gatherings, and learned all of the ins and outs of flying drones. Recently, he has completed drone photography and videography projects at Microsoft and the Woodburn Drag Strip, and has become the exclusive drone flyer for the Drag Strip.

With his law enforcement background, Frank enjoys keeping up with the continually evolving drone regulations, rules, laws, and technology. He takes the time to make sure every aspect of UpDown Drone is done right, from carrying proper insurance liability to researching and following all local rules and laws at every location, to making sure he gets that perfect shot during drone flight.

Our mission is providing you with unique access to innovative technology, with superior service and integrity. Let us know how we can give you a unique perspective with drone photography and videography.
