Drone Delivery Start-Up Zipline Beats Amazon, UPS And FedEx To The Punch | CNBC
Can someone tell me, Why do the hospitals in the areas being delivered to not just stock the supplies there for themselves?

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 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.

I guess the real question is where you could invest in this company before it gets bought by AMZ.
Enony Muz (4 months ago)
Should I invest now on this company?

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.
