hospitals in FL will soon be using drones to carry meds from one hospital roof to the other around the state (vs. car courier as they do today).  They expect cost and delivery time to go from $$$$$$$$$$$$$ and forever   to NIL

Just one in a million uses for drone technologies.  Invest wisely  ;D

All this really doesn't matter until some  :censored: ing moron fly's one that get's sucked into an engine of a liner either descending or ascending from an airport that causes a crash and then hundreds of people are dead.  These  :censored: ers think it's a toy and they can do what they want and fly where they want with it.  All that will change...  It's going to happen, it's just a matter of time.

Business/medical use of drones will continue to surge. I agree 100% some retard will down a plane or something stupid.  At a bare minimum someone soon will record some high official or CEO in an "intimate moment" by the private pool or in the bedroom, I see blackmail opportunity galore with a drone and a GoPro  ;D

Replacement drones will certainly add to the overwhelming demand coming down the line.  I think about drones and twitch to not get out my 12 ga benelli   ;D

Well no wonder that kid put a pistol on his drone- look at the way those folks attacked that drone!  [lighten up people, kidding here :-)]

Oh yeah, this is going to be quite the court issue, on quite a few different fronts.

Well, if they can make it glide for 30 seconds more, that might be enough to get one away from the crowded airport....

I kinda' could use a drone for a major house project going on.... I wonder if Amazon would use a drone to deliver a drone to me? How ironical....

Drones might even add a certain safety factor to, say, using things like fireworks. You could mount them on the drone and use electrical triggers to light them and then <hopefully> drop them. Great idea, eh?  I wonder if a circular saw could be affixed accurately to a drone.... then you could make a whole bunch of cuts in the same plank, all pre- planned and accurately done. Man, I can see the uses for these things are going to be nearly limitless..... along with the need for Kevlar umbrellas for the entire population. Oh yeah, this is gonna' go somewhere, maybe even everywhere.

But seriously, these things are really pretty cool and I really would like to get one for documenting the current house work....
