A Pennsylvania dry cleaner is planning to utilise the services of a drone to deliver clothes

According to NBC Philadelphia, Manayunk Cleaners’ owner, Harry Vartanian, tired of the “old school” method of dry cleaning pick-up, turned a four-bladed DJI Phantom quadracopter into a delivery machine to bring dry cleaning directly to the customer’s front door, the Huffington Post reported.

He told The Huffington Post that he would be holding a lottery at every month end and the lucky winner will get their dry cleaning delivered by the drone.

Vartanian’s drone is capable of carrying 1-2 pounds over a short distance, but said that his future plans include an advanced model, which is capable of carrying loads up to 10 pounds.
