Google is working on its own package delivering drone army

| August 29, 2014

This video shows a very promising drone based package delivery system designed by Google.  It’s not quadcopter based like the one seen in recent Amazon.com videos.  Google has opted for the flying wing route.  It does vertical take off and I assume it lands the same way.  One big difference is that stops and hovers at its destination and then winches the package to the ground.  Pretty neat trick.  Hit the link for the video.
