    Default (OT) Drone package delivery attempt didn't go so well

    I've been carrying on about drones here before, especially the idea of having drones doing package deliveries.

    Seems a drone package delivery was tried in Russia recently but it wasn't a smooth landing:

    I had to laugh although it wasn't funny for the people whose jobs depend on getting the drones to do their drone thing.

    I pictured sending a package filled with fine china to someone as a nice gift, for instance, by drones. Can you imagine the smash? I've heard of people shipping a bunch of earthworms or a flock of bees--the possibilities for drone disasters might get really interesting.

    If you put a HANDLE WITH CARE label on the package, would that help? Do drones read labels?
