I read it and it likely was for publicity as the article clearly stated.__it won't happen in your lifetime Flacko__it won't replace ground delivery because it can't, so what's the point of having a ten thousand dollar plus drone investment and a qualified operator and still have to have ground delivery.<quoted text>
Domino's 'DomiCopter' drone can deliver two large pepperonis

On a lunch break last month, a small custom-built octacopter made a 10-minute flight through the city of Guildford, outside of London. Its special cargo: two large pepperoni pizzas.
The delivery was masterminded by a T + Biscuits, an English creative agency that was hired by Domino's to test prototypes.
"We're looking at making flying pizzas a possibility," Tom Hatton, Master Brewer and founder of T + Biscuits, told NBC News.
A pizza delivering drone smells deliciously similar to the fabled TacoCopter a taco delivery app which, to the Internet's disappointment, ended up being just a concept design but Hatton insists the "DomiCopter" is the real deal. "We're serious about it," he said.
Still, don't hold your breath for a local copter-powered delivery system coming anytime soon. The daily business of T + Biscuits has more to do with mobile apps than logistics and safety regulations, and while the video certainly demonstrates that the pizzas did fly, the firm and its client likely did it more for publicity than for revolutionizing the delivery game, at least for now
Get a mental picture of a few pizza delivery drones flying near your local Navy base. Hah!
