The New Drone On the Block

Despite the absence of FAA regulations on the use of drones for commercial purposes, drone makers dauntlessly continue with their mission of building more drones, specifically drones for deliveries. There is a new drone on the block: the Horsefly.

In the wake of Amazon’s audacious plan to employ delivery drones someday, there’s now another company working to create a drone that could lead the way to airborne automatic deliveries and tackle some of the specific problems of package delivery. Called the HorseFly, this drone comes equipped with eight rotors–twice the amount of the standard consumer drone–and has its sights set on becoming your new delivery man. Read more at:

Powered by eight rotors, the drone reads a barcode to determine the destination, drops the package directly on your doorstep, then flies back to the van, ready for a recharge and its next delivery. That future may not be far off, thanks to research engineers at the University of Cincinnati who are feeding a Loveland company’s expansion plans. See more here:

Perhaps it would not take long before delivery drones will be given an official go-signal by FAA, as it has already allowed a commercial drone to fly.

Drone maker AeroVironment of Monrovia, California, and BP energy corporation have been given permission to use a Puma drone to survey pipelines, roads and equipment at Prudhoe Bay in Alaska, the agency said. Made by AeroVironment, the Puma is a small, hand-launched craft about 4 1/2 feet long and with a 9-foot wingspan. It was initially designed for military use. Read more at:
