    I'm just imagining 5000 amazon employees launching these just sayin lol. That kind of dough would allow these people to help a lot of people in these remote areas. They have great tech right here. hope they stay solvent and do so much more for people.

    Is it piloted by humans on the ground or is it auto piloted by computer to and from the DZ? What is the range of flight? What is the fuel source? This would be a great method of medicine delivery for global disasters in remote areas.

    Damn, I had an idea like this a few years ago after seeing amazons package delivery drones, this is such a great idea, this could help save millions of lives in Africa!

    And yet, it will still be militarized to instead drop chemical weapons. Not a very bright future for many of us if you ask me.
