(RoboticsTrends) Flirtey, a Nevada-based startup, completed the first FAA-approved urban drone delivery in the United States, delivering a package that included bottled water, emergency food and a first aid kit to a residential area in Hawthorne, Nevada. Flirtey says the six-rotor drone flew along a half-mile, pre-programmed delivery route and lowered the package at a precise drop-off location.
Flirtey should be a familiar name as it also carried out the first FAA-approved drone delivery in the US. Flirtey used a drone to deliver medical supplies from an airfield to a medical clinic in Wise County, Virginia in 2015.
