I receive music content by mail if not daily, for sure every other day or three.
I saw this article and found it interesting about drone delivery. What seems to me a potential problem for companies like Amazon or Walmart etc.; is similar to here in Sacramento, their large distribution centers are located very near to major airports. So we’ll have significant drone activity just hundreds of yards to major air traffic; how’s that going to work?

Sorry if this doesn’t exactly match up with this thread, just didn’t know where else to post it?

Not to mention those drones would be easy target practice for delinquents who have nothing better to do. The whole concept sounds C R A Z Y! Do we need more objects flying over our heads and highways.....and imagine mechanical failures.

IMO, Amazon's two day delivery is fine and those who want it overnighted are certainly free to pay the extra price. But drone delivery has way too many obstacles in its path ........ and the drone itself may potentially become the obstacle!

I was thinking more along the lines of F.A.A. Guidelines/Regs. and also nefarious hacking to control the drones. I’m sure given these companies’ massive influence and liquidity they have already planned for these issues; but still, one wonders.

I’ve stayed at the Casa Madrona, nice litttle joint, very hilly though. Sweet Orville flies again. Drones will definitely have their trials and tribulations, but with faster processors and communication methods on the way, I believe they’ll soon be everywhere. You’ll be able to get that new kitten or Led Zeppelin surround title in less than an hour📦

Hmm...should I be expecting a drone with my Rush AFTK set later today?
The question in the future might be, "Hmm...should I be expecting my Rush AFTK set with the drone that arrives later today?" The potential snafus with early adopter drone delivery are going to be really fun...especially when the videos get posted on Youtube.
