I agree - that was a cheap tip

I fly R/C helis and design autonomous drones - there is no way a heli drone is coming to my house delivering anything. I can see that thing running amok and attacking someone on the front porch or yanking someone's hair into one of the rotors. Not to mention trying to navigate a bunch of trees and power lines.

Exactly! Much cheaper and safer to send a full salaried employee in a cement truck to make deliveries. LOL!

Someone still has to man the controls to fly the drone and that person is going to cost more than a minimum wage delivery person. So, I don't see where the savings come in.
