UPS Takes to the skies with drone test

TechCrunch has an excellent article (…) up about UPS using drones to deliver packages to a remote location. There are a ton of details, and regulations, to overcome before UPS can get off the ground.

My favorite part of the article:
“During a second, unofficial demonstration of the HorseFly for UPS on Monday, some sort of interference – possibly from the broadcast reporters’ cameras – caused an issue with the drone’s compass. The drone aborted its launch, tried to land on top of the UPS truck, fell to the side and was nearly crushed by the still-closing lid of the vehicle.

“We’ve never seen it before,” said Burns, of the glitch.”
