    So if the Tacocopter gave out tacos for free, the FAA wouldn't have a problem with it?
     
    AlienIsGOD and Wrigleyvillain say thanks.

    I suppose if they could convince the FAA that the Tacocopter was experimental for doing "Taco Market Surveys" .... :D

    The developer already said its not a real thing. Just a cool idea that he made a web page for.

    Would be kind of cool out here in the sticks where you wouldn't have to worry about someone stealing your tacos ... but there is a high likelyhood someone would shoot the thing down thinking it's goverment surveillance or aliens. :laugh:

    So I guess you could say that the govt shot this idea down.

    What happens when the thing lands on someone's lawn and little 'Tommy' or 'Sally' or Fido get too close to the propeller blades? Looks like either an idea with too little thought put into it beyond the tech or a joke.
