For me this things looks way overengineered. It behaves like full-scale aircraft using full-scale aircraft materials. Net result is that most of o those technologies, latches, panzer-rigid cargo covers, antennas, even carbon fiber technology if laid with ruggedness in mind. Thsi design would be scaling very well up, but is also badly scaling down to where it is now. This makes short-legged aircraft. you can read on the van: Institut fur Flugsystem etc. A source of overengineering and short range. Those guys can make excellent large planes... And conduct research properly,.. But they would get mad before trying EPP platform and forget having fun with fancy flight control. They just cannot invent an UAV below 10.000EUR.

Just wrote a paper to debunk Prime Air myths, go around patents, demonstrate prior art where applicable and proposed cleaner legal solution for airspace. Got fed up being regular worker at Amazon just because they hire in Poland only for lowest wages, ignoring job applications for Prime Air program. My paper is here:
