Free Military Drone. Thanks UPS!

    A guy on reddit received an unsolicited package from UPS. It is a $400k unmanned aerial vehicle. It appears to by part 1 of 2 packages. He is missing the propulsion and the imaging portions of the drone.

    The response from UPS is amazing.

    OP here, just called UPS. They told me that it was one of the undelivered packages in their office, and asked if I’ve ever had an undelivered package. I said no, but he insisted that it was mine, and said that it was up to me if I want to keep it or not.

    I don’t think that’s the right way to go about this, so I’m going to call the number on the card, and get this sorted out.

    I am curious as to why this was undeliverable? Wouldn’t the original recipient and original shipper be wondering where their drone had gone? No one followed up on a $400K drone that UPS had “lost” at some point?

    I would have kept it and tried assembling it. Then contact some RC plane enthusiasts and see how we can get it to fly.
