It’s a good thing that Santa is now largely out of the American airspace, because many of those drones are now careening wildly through the air, crashing into lawns, cars, roofs and grandmas. Twitter is loaded today with tales of aerodynamic woe.
Americans seem pretty good at buying drones — flying them, not so much. It will be a Christmas miracle if nobody gets hurt.
