    What a surprise! Amazon got an FAA exemption! Government and big business in bed together, as usual. We will see when the accidents start to happen? I guess they will get an exemption for that too! Disgusting!

    Many streets like in the Nederlands are not even 30ft wide from front door to front door. So 6 or 8 households have to stay inside when Amazon delivers a package? Because of the flight time there must be many start, landing, loading and charging places for those drones will it ever gone work. The whole package routing from truck to drone must be developed from scratch or is someone loading the drones? At places with bad weather like coastal area’s it be a real challenge to get the package delivered on time by drone.
    And maybe hijacking Amazon drones will get a new very beneficial hobby.
    I think most hobbyist will start flying with parts Amazon is using in there drones too :-))
    I personal think it’s new and challenging to try this new technique for package delivery but at the end it’s only gone work in a very few area’s and that’s way to expensive to use it and slowly this concept disappears and the hobbyist will keep on flying. Drones are great to use with camera’s on special cases like extra eyes for police, fire brigade and rescue teams. Or with special equipment for research purposes like agriculture and environment, but we will see what the future brings us…
    Great vlog!!!

    I think we all need to be worried especially if they are restricted to 400 feet

    I’d say the 400 foot AGL and the exemption for Amazon "IS the smoking gun" that LONG before the Reauthorization Bill the FAA quietly wrote the legislation "Knowingly" they would hand over the skies to Amazon and take 400 ft and under away from the hobbyists. Until I see the FAA protecting the "Aeronautical Hobbyist" in a more meaningful and positive way beyond what they have restrictively outlined so far with the (you get this grass field and that’s it) attitude I will see it no other way.
