    Didn't know that Amazon had solved the battery/range/payload puzzle. Wonder how you deliver packages inside a 20 RT battery life. If they have, I'd like to know how, and with what?

    I don't think they solved anything yet. They need the feds to authorize their experiments so they can try. It may never work.

    PEM fuel cells are one viable option (4-10 hours flight time).

    Roaming "flight center" trucks dispatched to service a specific area are another.

    Designated local neighborhood drone delivery spots with willing and able neighbors who sign up are one way to service broad areas without worrying about landing on grandmas dog Betsy, etc.

    Smart folks over there. They'll make it work.

    I hope they don't make things worse than waiting for the FAA.

    I'm taking guesses as to how much money Amazon has contributed to Senator Booker's campaign fund

    Not sure if this is better or worse than the current situation.
    I still don't get how a set of "Proposed Rules" can pass for legal/illegal use.
