Amazon has patented a design for what is being labelled a mega drone – capable of delivering packages of any size to customers.

Alone, the single drone is restricted in the type of items it can deliver but with this new design they would “couple together to form a collective UAV” which would be used to “aerially transport virtually any size, weight, or quantity of items“.

The drones would come together as one uint for bigger items and fall into different configurations for smaller objects.
