Amazon is thinking about using miniature helicopter drones to deliver purchased items in 30 minutes or less, to Amazon Prime members.

Even if it was announced this week by the CEO Jeff Bezos, the system is still experimental and could take years to implement.

The “Octocopters” could deliver packages weighing up to five pounds, within a 10 mile-range. Around 86% of the packages delivered by Amazon weight less than 5 pounds.
