"The maneuvering system, developed by a team of inventors including Brian Beckman and a trio of Israelis, calls for ejecting the packages from drones while they’re in flight. A spring-loaded shooter, a drogue parachute or a set of actuators could do the trick."

I live at the beach . . . hope they figure out how to account for the wind. Yesterday we had gusts of 45 mph.

Seems like a Captain Obvious moment that they couldnt use it unless many conditions were optimal -- and a 45 MPH wind would not be on that list...
