First home delivery by radio-controlled drone

The Associated Press reports that the first radio-controlled drone delivered bottled water, food, and a first-aid kit to a residential location in a small Nevada town March 10, in what the drone manufacturer and Nevada Governor call the first drone home delivery in the U.S. A six-rotor drone flew a half-mile pre-programmed GPS route and lowered the package outside a vacant residence southeast of Reno. Regular drone delivery may be the future, but currently NASA is working with the drone industry and the Federal Aviation Administration to create a low-altitude air traffic control system, largely to regulate drones.
