Why use delivery drones?

Instead of using drivers, the Russian drone was designed to conventional fly packages to remote areas. 

YouTuber Mr. Graff uploaded a video showing the Russian drone crash from another perspective:

Despite the failed drone launch, plans to use UAVs for delivering packages will still continue

“We won’t stop with this, we will keep trying,” said Russian politician Alexey Tsydenov in a Reuter’s article. “Those who don’t risk don’t get a result.”

Even though companies like Google have successfully field-tested delivery UAVs, drone crashes are still bound to happen. The Russian drone that failed to launch should have had a backup safety device like a drone parachute. Even Amazon prepared for the inevitable and patented a drone design that could self-destruct midflight to mitigate damage. Thankfully, no one was injured in today’s crash, but delivery drones in general should be equipped with mandatory safety equipment in case of a hardware failure
