With Amazon's announcement that they're exploring the use of drones to deliver packages in the not so distant future, I'm wondering what your thoughts are if we apply this service to ag parts/supplies? Do you think this could be a viable alternative for agriculture when it comes to parts/supplies delivery. . . Or are there too many obstacles (i.e. logistics, safety, etc.)?
A Chinese delivery company, SF Express, is already experimenting with octocopter delivery.
In the year 2020, will your tractor part be delivered by a drone in less than 30 minutes?
