So the decision by Bezos and his colleagues on Sunday to reveal the company’s latest lofty goal of delivering packages via unmanned aerial vehicles seems like a characteristic retort, directing the spotlight elsewhere. In a largely flattering segment on 60 Minutes, Bezos allowed correspondent Charlie Rose to tour a 1.2 million square foot Amazon fulfillment center and then pitched an eye-popping service called Amazon Prime Air. An army of small autonomous octocopters, Bezos told Rose, will one day leave Amazon warehouses, take to the skies, and transport packages up to 10 miles away, effortlessly dropping into customers’ picturesque backyards to deliver a single order.
Does bring up some "interesting question" !
Do we need to install a "mailbox" up in a tree or up a pole for "Air Mail" !
If people fire at the drones will they fire back ?
Will the "Birds" get confused ?
All good questions and many more to come I'am sure.
We all know the FAA is in LOVE with this idea....thousands of robots flying around the skies...You presently cannot use a drone for any commercial purposes and the legislature has no plans for softening that stand. They are going to go further to take these types of hobby aircraft away from consumers because they are of course some day going to be exploited by bad people...IDK why some wackjob hasn't flown one over a prison and dropped contraband into the yard yet...it's not a difficult task...
