Technology rules, when it's used for peaceful purposes.

Think about how much less gasoline will be needed to get take out from Taco Bell, etc.?

Right now it takes a 2,000 lbs vehicle to get you to go back and forth. This little 5 lbs plane can do it hundreds of times more efficiently.

Those things tend to have issues with wind, even mild.  Don't expect the cars to go away.

In my part of the world, we call drones "practice targets."  Most of my neighbors think they need 0 or 00 buckshot for them, but I believe that #4 shot would work just as well.

Spy drones would make for great practice targets. But I'm not about to shoot down a drone that's in the process of delivering my Double Decker and Seven Layer Burrito.

And how do you know that it is about to deliver food instead spraying you with poison?    It is hard to believe that *someone* hasn't though of using these as assassination agents.

If somebody wants to assassinate me I'm sure it would be exceedingly easy, and would not require the use of high-tech gadgetry.

The truck delivers hundreds of packages along the most efficient route beginning and ending at the warehouse. The multicopter delivers only one package, so delivering hundreds of packages requires hundreds of trips to and from the warehouse, potentially covering many times the distance that the truck covers.

Still, I'm a big fan of multicopters and UAVs (outside of the "security" state), and I expect them to find many uses. If you haven't seek the volocopter yet, it seems a very exciting development in aeronautics.

With progress in battery technology that seems to be on the horizon, manned multicopters and related vehicles could finally become the flying car in a decade or two and could become flying taxis available to common people in urban areas much sooner.

I've realized this as well. I wonder how many folk have been disappeared in this country by order of the State.

Until that drone really becomes useful we will let state handle assassination for us.

Life is like an Amazon drone.  You never know what you're going to get until you shoot one down.
