    It funny, I have FPV stuff and know a lot of guys very heavily into this and they all thought Amazon's announcement on "60 Minutes" was a joke.

    A recent FAA OIG report said there is a chance that the FAA will NEVER fulfill the mandate to incorporate UAS in the national airspace. Having worked on one of the key systems needed for the_really_big UAS to operate, I agree with the OIG.

    "As a result, while it is certain that FAA will accommodate UAS operations at limited locations, it is uncertain when and if full
    integration of UAS into the NAS will occur."

    EDIT. IMHO, The only systems I think the FAA will ever allow are line of site, like photography. It is stunning to think that Amazon really thinks this is going to work.

    All amazon needs is to get some lobbyist to push the FAA and give bribes here and there so FAA will give in. Just look at the FCC and net neutrality fruits of a bought government.

    It'll be great when eagles start attacking the drones and causing them to crash. Then what? Will Amazon say that since that diptard Obama said it's now ok for wind farms to slaughter birds of prey that they should be allowed to cull eagles so that their drones are safe? This is science fiction at its best.
    remember when people actually BUILT their airplanes?

    Just one more 'ordinary' job gone, the delivery truck driver.

    We can't all be rocket scientists.
