Drones are not ready to deliver the mail

Amazon has been working on it for a long time and other parties are also: the delivery of parcels and other items with drones . However, that turns out to be quite difficult. Amazon also had to cheat by sending their first ‘delivery’ in the backyard of their own distribution center to the one person who lived next door, but also in Russia it has recently gone wrong .

The Siberian village of Ulan-Ude got the scoop of the first delivery by drone, but a few moments after takeoff the drone who had to deliver the package was given treatment. I will not quite reveal how it ends, but let’s say that this should not be your first impression if you want to convince people of the idea of drone deliveries.

Oops. The worst thing is: this was not a DJI drone of a few hundred euros, but a serious thing of around 15,000-20,000 euros. Exactly what went wrong could not be said by organizers Rudron Expeditor 3M, but local leader Alexei Tsydenov was certain that this was not the end of drone experiments and that the region would continue to try and get this off the ground.

The Russian post, however, is not so good: their logo is big on the package and they suffer so much loss of face. They have already tried to distance themselves from the crash, but that is difficult when your name is everywhere. Next time better, we will say, but chances are that there will now be a while under the radar to be tested with the technology before the cameras are made again …
