So much to be said here. "long Distance" I guess that is a relative statement. Then the big problem is these companies have to confiscate the air space from those that have used it for the past 60 years. I hope they don't or do forget to recharge it. I guess a baby must learn to crawl before it can walk and we are in the infancy of this just like self driving cars. How's that worked out so far???

Their corporate headquarters could use a few more windows!!!

There are no "self driving" (autonomous) cars available today.
So, I can't comment on how well its worked out so far.
There are cars that have "driver assist" systems (similar in concept to a flybarless gyros) that people sometime confuse with "self driving".
EG: Toyota, Nissan and GM. Oh... and Tesla too.
I wouldn't trust the drive assist system in my Toyota to take me someplace while I watch a DVD or a game show on my cell phone

And that confusion tends to get people killed.

On the other hand, I equate the invasion of commercial drones into the "shared airspace" we use to the 72MHz frequency RC systems that "shared" the spectrum with paging systems, 2-way radios and the like.
I seem to have lost many airplanes when a certain city services truck passed.

Our hobby will always be on the sh!tend of the stick when it the stick is being held by a commercial viable enterprise.

Everything you saw in the video is:
Hobby grade ESC's
Hobby grade motors
Hobby grade flight controllers
Hobby grade servos
Hobby grade construction techniques
Hobby grade RC system

What happens when it rains as in a pop up thunder storm, pop up rain shower, etc.? There are so many unknowns. Wing, a division of Google is essentially building model airplanes to deliver stuff and they want to remove modelers from the sky in the process.

Hill installed a smaller carburetor for fuel efficiency. The stock engine could muster one horsepower, but level flight required only about .15 hp. A relatively large wooden propeller of 14-inch diameter and 12-inch pitch resulted in an air speed of 43 mph at 3900 rpm
very cool !!

Terry, I leaned to fly Helis on the Dave Brown simulator, it worked slick, looped on my 2nd gallon

Hill also set the duration record with an OS 4 stroke and tiny carb back in the day.

If you did this today with all the Drone Weenies about, this sort of thing would likely get you a visit from the FAA, NSA, DOJ and probably the CIA or maybe the ONI.
