the octorotor will fly overhead, release the beer, and the beer parachutes to the person who ordered it (hopefully).

Uh-huh, and what do they figure the failure rate on the parachutes is going to be?

Yeah,why bother with the chute? Just hover 10 ft overhead, drop, and away you go. Hopefully they're using cans, not bottles.

Somebody watched The Hunger Games and thought, "Hey, I could do that!  With my RC octorotor!  And beer!"

You know, this is a decent idea, but the wrong application.

You know how they shoot rolled-up t-shirts into the stands at ball games with handheld air launchers?

Airdrop 'em instead.  Mount cameras on the drones, and display the ensuing carnage on the Jumbotron.

Cars can deliver beer too. You see how well that's working out.

Unfortunately that way you are stuck with a choice between Guinness and something that really isn't beer.

Well subby, I'd probably say something along the lines of "Go fark yourself, I'll get my own god damned beer."


/Not that it was a serious question. :)

Even better if they don't even announce it's happening, just start launching shiat at people.
