When new drones are unveiled to show their most likely remarkable abilities, the expectation and hopes are that the first flight goes off without a drawback. A smooth very first flight will increase everybody’s interest in it and reveal spectators that there is nothing to fear as we move to this new innovation. Sadly for a Russian mail delivery drone, the first flight didn’t rather go as planned.
The test flight for this drone occurred in the Siberian city of and was set to show the drone’s capability to safely provide a package to a surrounding town. The video that was recorded of this flight shows the drone taking off smoothly from the launch pad, bring a package that displayed the blue and white logo design of the Russian Post.
As the drone flies, everything seems to be fine. After a brief flight, the drone can be seen to slowly tip sideways, which ultimately sends it crashing full speed into a 3 story structure. Gasps can be heard in the video from astonished spectators.An audible,”GAH!”is heard and the camera doing the flight filming is briefly turned away from the drone’s crash scene. Seconds later on when the location is back in electronic camera view, all that can be seen is a completely shattered drone. The video ends with a single paper blowing through the wind. Russian Post will continue to establish their shipment
drone and system to guarantee this does not happen again. Modifications will be made with weight distribution and extra precaution will be taken before the drone is tested again.
