Amazon Reveals More Drone Delivery Details

How many of you think that we will see drone delivery any time soon? I like the idea and, if anyone has the resources to pull it off, it's Amazon. I just think this is more in the gimmick / publicity stage right now than anything else.

We were thinking: Manned aircraft above 500 feet. Between 400 and 500 feet there’d be a no-fly zone آ— a safety buffer. Between 200 and 400 feet would be a transit zone, where drones could fly fairly quickly, horizontally. And then below 200 feet, that would be limited to certain operations. For us, it would be takeoff and landing. For others, it might be aerial photography. The realtors, for example, wouldn’t need to fly above 200 feet to get a great shot of a house.
