Here you have White people saving lives in Africa, only for it's population bro explode and subsequently migrate to the US and Europe in the millions and later moan and whine about the very people who made their existence possible.

Who made their existence possible , someone needs history lesson Zulu ring a bell the colonization of the southern tip of Africa sound familiar..

The white people who save lives aren't the kind that causes others to moan and whine. They are the ones who fight for social justice, they're not against immigration, they don't care about skin color as much as you do. Those are my brothers and your enemies.

This won’t work in America. Trump voters would shoot the drones down.

What does voting for Trump have to do with drones?

Can someone tell me, Why do the hospitals in the areas being delivered to not just stock the supplies there for themselves?
P . (16 days ago)
Because blood has a low shelf life, stockpiling it is pretty expensive, and rwanda has roads, but many of them are made of dirt and can be blocked in their rain season.

The area is a warzone and dirt roads. Drones are faster
Marian Keller (6 months ago)
The shelf life of a blood conserve is only about six weeks, and the needed amount per hospital can vary quite a bit.

Many companies are now looking at rushing into this area..but they must first eliminate the RC Flying hobbyists that have been safely flying RC aircraft for 50+ years. Bottom line they want their airspace (under 400 feet) to make a profit. Right now commercial drone companies and their lobbyists are attempting to repeal FAA (in the US) laws that legally allow hobbyists to fl in their own allocated airspace. It's basically a power grab for profit and the hobbyists and the Model Flying public is in the way.

I don't see why we can't deconflict that airspace just like private pilots can fly in the same airspace as commercial flights

I am hobbyists flier. I really hope this doesn't happen.

Very nice concept.
However there would be couple of issues to deal with in areas with large population density.

cool70200 LOL Ya think? Being dive-bombed by drones dropping packages like guided missles? :-P

I guess the real question is where you could invest in this company before it gets bought by AMZ.
Doom30025 (3 months ago)
Actually japan buys everything technological since they can't make it themselves XD
Enony Muz (10 months ago)

It's hard to say, I think this will only be good for smaller stores Amazon and Walmart and so on will have their own systems
Jose Jimenez (10 months ago)
If it’s beating amazon which is a giant in package delivery I think it deserves a dollar or two haha all kidding aside I think it’s worthy of investing.
