Unmanned drones to slash NHS delivery times to one-fifth of road 'n' rail transport

Bob Dunlop

Um drone deliverys to the Isle or Wight have be trialed with the first flight on the 9th of May.

Fixed wing UAV with a 100kg payload capacity, landing on a grass runway from the news footage I saw.

Not sure is it out of line of sight, theres a "safety pilot" at each end of the link and the flight is protected by a temporary (90 day) "danger area" exclusion zone.
