Get Real! wrote:There are many issues with this… if you fly too low you’ll end up in power lines and if you fly over a certain height (commercially) I believe you need special aviation licensing.

On top of that what happens when another company follows suit? How will they avoid collisions and what happens when one lands on a pedestrian’s head?


Also, who is going to pilot each drone? Aren't they remote-controlled? Or do they fly themselves?

What if you live in a flat or block of flats? Does it fly in through your window?

The more you think about it...
