Drone delivers medicine to rural Virginia clinic
Extremely impressive. 5.5lb payload and atleast 20 miles of flight time per battery.
All good until the FAA sees they're not in LoS and tries to shut them down.
Someone leak this to the major networks and let one of their anti-drone reporters investigate it. The story line would probably be completely different.
They had government approval.
That means that the government wants the control.
Yes I read the article. But it also states that outside of this exemption, this would be illegal to do and that they expect it to be illegal at least until 2017 when new regulations (which were supposed to be here this year) come out.
It's just like when they let Amazon do a few tests and then decided it was illegal.
Doing the one test means absolutely nothing in terms of whether or not this will become a real deal.
C'mon man you that Jaded?
It's pure R&D with a widfall as a result.
It just proved it could be done, is that 'nothing'?
This technology has been out for years. We've known that this could be done, for years. Impressive, but not new, and still isn't groundbreaking in terms of legislation allowing this to become a viable business option.
The proposed UAS regulation NPRM public comment 'window' recently closed and the process is moving forward.
