Amazon to begin testing delivery drones in India

PanARMENIAN.Net - Amazon will begin testing its Prime Air delivery drones in India, according to Digital Spy.

The online retailer has been unable to trial the service in its native U.S. due to legislation restricting the use of drones over populated areas.

India is yet to formally draw up laws limiting drone usage, allowing Amazon to carry out over-the-air deliveries in Mumbai and Bangalore.

However, Mumbai police have expressed concerns that the flying contraptions could be used to carry bombs if they become commonplace, reports Ubergizmo.

The Prime Air Drone, an octocopter that weighs 25kg, is capable of carrying up to 2.26kg at speeds of 80kph.

In the U.S., the use of "model aircraft" for commercial purposes has been prohibited since 2007.
