different countries different rules. Is it safe? No. Should it be allowed in the US? heck no. I am not happy seeing some drone flying around in the area.

Drone deliveries so far are not expected to fly low over people. I believe their rules are a bit more strict. The will tell but for now some think its cool while others are annoyed about getting their privacy interrupted and still - unsafe anyway.

I have no clue how Amazon, or UPS is going to work around this obstacle.

The privacy issue is a concern but it's also IMHO overblown due to fear generated by the media. It's reached a point where people see any sort of small flying device and assume automatically that it is spying on them. What's next ? That Frisbee is spying ??

True from what I've heard delivery drones basically want to be flown around 200 ft (more or less in the upper end of the model aircraft range). However as I see it the safety issue primarily revolves around making the deliveries. At some point they are going to have to drop altitude and possibly land to make the delivery. How they propose to make this part of the op safe and foolproof I have yet to hear.
