    UGHHH this is about 3 towns over from me and I have to say this is getting annoying.
    First there is NO WAY that a P2V can pick up a 12 pack of beer. It clearly is them trying to get some free advertising.

    I had to reply to the silly comments on the FB page - https://www.facebook.com/abc40fox6/post ... eam_ref=10

    I expressed it is not a drone it is a quadcopter - it is not made by a company in Western Mass oh and I bet that box was empty. Seriously how much weight could P2V lift? One maybe two bottles of beer at the most I would think

    "The drone’s manufacturer says this could be the future"

    And it alludes to FloDesign as being the manufacturer. Or its Chairman Stan Kowalski. FloDesigns makes wind turbines, like for large-scale wind farms.

    So, even beyond the obvious BS of a Phantom carrying that kind of payload, this is fishy on a few other levels.
