OppiKoppi Beer drone tech

OppiKoppi beer drone technology v1.1: This is the sort of ordnance drones should really deliver all over the world.
More updates to follow, but you will be able to order beers from your phone to the District 9 campsite in 2013.
At the moment it is hand guided, but it will eventually fly on a gps grid. We will send word.

Besides the issues of dropping nothing without approval from an aircraft other than water or finely divided sand and the flight over crowds… The folks at Darkwing Aerials have created a video that’s going viral. The folks at Oppikoppi must be very happy with the press they are getting. DJ Bob told me so ;-) Another worthy UAS got talent entry helped on because that’s the very brand of beer I drink here.

Its not the only beer lifting drone, for the last couple of years HobbyKing a distributor of RC models and parts holds a beer lift challenge. The 2013 one is in progress http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/beerlift.asp
