    A short term experiment will be done 2.-5.9.2015 to deliver mail in Helsinki, Finland.
    Only packages from an electronics store to a island close to city centre will be delivered as a test by drones, regular mail like letters and newspapers will still be shipped by boat.

    Use whatever online translator to get the idea. The company that will be delivering the packages is one that does asset inspection like powerlines and railways by UAV:s so the hardware should be good to go.

    I will have some days off and after that it's all flying my drone:):).
    BTW more rain than here isn't possible,so it will be better anyway.
