i can't see how one guy controlling multiple drones sat in a room can be safe... no line of sight...
makes a total mockery of the rules imposed on hobbyists.

I'm personally looking forward to them trying to deliver to estates where I grew up as a kid ... lmao, it's not going to end well.

yeah, if you read the comments most people either want to use them as target practice, think they will  be stolen..or just don't want them in the air near them at all.

I mean I've been a hobbyist for quite some time now and even I don't want them anywhere near my house.

Its a bitter pill to swallow to be honest - for years we've been told how dangerous our drones are, we need to register, fly X metres from people, be within VLOS at all times etc. Now we see money talks and we're supposed to just accept that Amazon is a 100% safe operator, no questions asked and have these things buzzing around our houses. I don't even fly my little drones in the garden when the kids are about - imagine one had a failure and smashed through a conservatory or something, it's ridiculous.

If there's one thing this hobby has taught me it's that there WILL be a failure - you can have the best kit in the world but all it takes is a bad solder joint and these things are coming down.

I feel like these delivery drones are a school project - an answer to a problem that doesn't exist, but is cool to work on.

The best use I can see for them is delivering things like medical supplies to remote areas in a search and rescue capacity to assist before a team gets there. That's a real solution but I'm not sure it's a £billion pound market...

Unless they are going to apply the same rules as when aircrafts are designed like dual FADEC (FC), redundant motors and batteries then these air deliveries are a disaster waiting to happen. If they applied the same standards to 'drone' delivery vehicles they did to regular civilian aircrafts then the costs to deliver would be way in excess of normal road transport.
I can't see it ending well.
Sorry I forgot, it's all OK as the Gov will sell them a licence.
