First off finding M600 and M200 experienced pilots with a strong resume isn't going to be easy. Reality is they all fly about the same, and many flights are autonomous so switching from say a Inspire 1 or 2 to a M600 would most likely be very easy for anyone with some decent experience.
Now the $40.00 per hour, I assume that is a contract hourly rate. So lets be reasonable here, that is just wouldn't cut it for most. You might get a newbe for that. Kick that up to $100.00 dollars an hour and you will probably get some takers.
As for me, I'm a Californian, Michigan is just too cold, Atlanta is too big, and I'm too old.

Good luck

I'm not too old but I'm having way too much fun skiing instead of driving a drone in Michigan in the winter for$40 an hour. .

How much are *you* paid per hour? $40/hr is an insult to anyone with the experience you are demanding. Try $100/hr+ and you may have a little success. $40/hr is joining the race to the bottom. However, if you want monkeys, pay peanuts, and you'll be happy.
