"All of us had read about (global e-commerce giant) Amazon's plans of using drones. We successfully carried out a test-delivery by sending a pizza to a customer located 1.5 km away from our outlet on May 11," Francesco's Pizzeria chief executive Mikhel Rajani said.

"What we have done now will be common place in the next four-five years," he said, adding every such customised drone costs around USD 2,000.

Apart from that there are technical difficulties like a limited operating radius of 8 km after which the batteries go dry, he said, adding proper infrastructure like having charging stations can help.

Even though the four-rotor version drone had a limited carrying capacity, he said the payload capacity can be increased to up to 8 kg in case of a an eight-rotor drone.

Much easier to steal a pizza from a drone I bet.

Some kid will take off his high-tops, tie them together, wing it at the drone and will get a pizza and a drone for free.

Starred! [I will Flag asap!]


Wow! That is awesome!

Great video proving proof of concept! I enjoyed it very much!

I wonder how Amazon feels about being upstaged
... and will it force them to wind back their R&D OR will it spur them on to greater heights [pun intended] so to speak

Well at least if you don't like the pizza you can beat the $hit out of the drone and nobody will file charges on you. LMAO!!!

I don't see this being very logical, how are they gonna make deliveries of anything secure. These things can be taken down fairly easily.
I also wonder what the skys would look like if the USPS got these drones. I imagine the skys would become cluttered.


Peace.

I heard it said yesterday that drones may be used as (what UPS delivery) is now...in the not too distant future our packages may arrive via a drone.

What I thought when I heard about this was...more people will lose their jobs.
