    “Cupid’s wings have been clipped,” said the company’s CEO, Wesley Berry.

    Berry said he agreed with the FAA’s characterization of delivery drones as “flying food processors” and that drone delivery operators probably need regulation — like training to avoid mishaps and insurance should they occur.

This technology is here to stay. When the time is right, we’ll be ready for orders to be delivered, not by an address, but by GPS coordinates. It’s exciting to plan the future of the business based on this emerging technology.
