I wanna see them testing this in an overseas delivery!

Imagine that thing flying over a sea at night in a thunderstorm!

Makes me think if it is waterproof

Well ,we'll just have to see what goes down.

They say it's going to take years to get all of the rules passed with the FAA. Also, you have to live within 30 minutes of an Amazon warehouse to be eligible for drone delivery. And it will only be able to carry a limited weight - I've heard 5 pounds is the limit. It would be cool but a very expensive adventure.

Small EMP directed at the drone and you also have a free drone that doesn't have a bullet hole and if I'm not mistaken ready to fly again in a few hours.

Cuz I'm sure amazon will just send out a fleet of these with no tracking system what-so-ever.

An EMP cannot be directed, it's set off and it goes in equal radius from the start point and only goes a certain distance. So a small EMP might take out a whole city or town....

True, but an EMP would take out the tracker. Trust me guys, I watched Goldeneye XD
