Are We Finally Getting Food Deliveries Using Drones?

Are We Finally Getting Food Deliveries Using Drones?

Uber Eats surprised many people when it announced that it would start testing drone delivery systems in San Diego sometime in 2020. While many consumers are excited about the possibility of receiving their food orders using UAVs, many companies are intrigued by logistics and other issues that may arise during its implementation.

Back in 2013, Jeff Bezos predicted that Amazon would start using drones for its deliveries by 2018. However, the year came and passed, but the anticipating customers did not see any changes in the e-commerce giant’s delivery methods.  

Many companies are definitely interested in drone delivery with Amazon and Uber, two of the most vocal proponents of the technology. However, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations are still strict and have not allowed any delivery forms resembling Bezos’ vision as of yet.


Drone delivery is highly likely in the future, but it will be implemented in various slow stages. That may take several years before any significant changes may be noticed by cities across the world.

For example, Uber Eats is planning to use drones to move batches of meals from restaurants to pre-defined locations. However, delivery drivers will still carry the food to their customers’ doorsteps. It may take many years before we can see individual meals delivered exclusively by drones. And, maybe even longer for full-blown grocery deliveries.

Beyond the novelty of drones, demand among consumers for more convenient delivery methods using drones definitely exists.

According to a survey conducted by Phononic, more than 60 percent of shoppers are willing to order dry goods from stores using a drone delivery system. Furthermore, 26 percent of shoppers said that they are willing to order fresh meat or product using the same delivery method.

However, the survey also highlights the obvious concerns of customers. How will UAVs maintain food freshness and keep the right temperature? Major players such as Uber and Amazon must figure out how to create a controlled environment within the drone payload that will maintain the quality of the products being delivered.

The difference between competitors may lie between timely delivery and the ability to deliver a wide variety of products and goods without sacrificing its quality. And this includes fresh foods and beverages.

How do you make money with your drone, though?

Okay, so you got your new and fancy drone, but how do you stand out from any dad out there who has the same drone and watched some tutorials online?

I did exactly that and barely had any success. 

But now I’m charging 5x as much as before and even have to refuse clients from time to time.

I even bought about 7 online courses… and I didn’t make much progress.

So how did I finally make it to this level?

If you want the short answer, I learned everything from this guy Alex, who’s making $200 per hour with his drone. And he’s even teaching exactly how to do that.

This is pretty much what you need to know:


1. Make sure you have a proper drone.

If you have any of the latest DJI Drones, like the Mavic Air 2, for example, you’re ready to start making money.

No need to overthink this, but if it’s any help, check this comparison of the best camera drones compared in 2020.

2.Learn how to create the best content to stand out

You won’t stand out from the next dad who bought a DJI drone for Cristmass in the eyes of your clients if you don’t do this.

It’s WAY more important to know what you’re doing than the gear you have.

You’ll need to learn and master the following:

  • Flying your drone(to stand out from people with basic drone shots)
  • Preparing for the flight and weather in advance
  • Learn the best drone settings (you need a proper setup template)
  • Create the Video Script (it's way easier if you know what to shoot)
  • Have a set of great cinematic shots you know how to do
  • Know how to edit the video so it stands out
  • Learn how to color grade

This is why you HAVE to invest in a proper way to learn things (instead of watching tutorials here and there).

3.Find clients that pay 5x more than regular

But not so fast.

You won’t make a penny if you don’t know how to find your clients.

I have struggled finding clients even when my videos were getting pretty good.

Until I learned a few tricks and how to find and approach them so they won’t be able to say no.

And what’s best, I learned how to get the price I asked for.

How can you do the same?

I have tested quite a few courses online and watched tons of videos on youtube, but frankly, I have learned more from one single course than from everything else… and all that in like a weekend.

Made back the money from this investment in myself in a single week and then much more.


How do I learn all of this? From youtube?

You could simply go online and learn everything in terms of video from youtube, forums, facebook groups etc.

However, let me tell you, it’s the worst way to learn all of this(and the slowest).

You won’t have a Complete Step By step guide on how to do everything.

I found myself frustrated, even after I learned how to do most of the video stuff that I still lacked some knowledge and I didn’t know why my shots weren’t standing out.

I got some general promotion ideas from some articles online, but again… I didn’t have much success and was charging too little for my time.

This is exactly where I learned how to make $200 per hour with my drone (From A to Z)

This course is hold by Alex Harris, who’s an international video creator, director, and drone operator with tons of experience.

And I had a great time stealing his know-how(and greatly profited from it, lol).

I recommend you watch his video presentation bellow and check out the course sales page. It’s quite cheap, considering you’re getting 320+ minutes of everything you need to know, step by step and 80+ minutes on how to actually find the ideal clients for you.

I'm a big drone enthusiast, the owner of and I also make weekly videos on my drone YouTube channel.
