    I don't think this will work but I love the creativity it brings. Thinking outside the box brings forth innovation. I think the saddest thing is our scaling back our space program. So many things like this opportunity to write this post and put it on the world wide web and talk on cell phones are as a result of the space program. While I'm not this particular idea is feasible, I love the style.

    Seems security is a factor. As Cats said, what is preventing the drones from being "taken out" and the packages disappearing?

    I think the idea is really cool, but I can't wait to see what happens when people start shooting them down.

    Ultra Bob,

    A property owner has the right to a "reasonable" use of the airspace immediately above his/her property. Above that fuzzy minimum altitude, the US government has sovereign rights to control airspace.

    With the potential for drones flitting about the sky above our homes, perhaps it's time to revise the boundaries above our properties -- upward.

    Just who is it that owns the sky?

    Who owns the air above our yards, our towns, our states and above our nation?

    Is it private property or part of the public domain?

    Is it everybody’s and anybody’s who wants to use and occupy it.

    Will government control the air space like the radio frequencies? Different companies could own certain altitudes? Would there be a citizens band where ordinary people could fly their drones? Just think, you could send your drone to the store for a loaf of bread.

    Will there be noise?

    Do you thinks we should decide these issues sooner rather than later?

    Yes Jay,
    This is called "Progress"
    and many of us are "Progressives".

    We seek to find a newer and better ways of doing everything.
