About 2,000 people were left without electricity after Wing ' s food drone set fire. In response to the incident, the Energex power company shut down the network. The electricity supply for most subscribers was resumed after about 45 minutes, and 300 consumers were left without electricity for three hours.
Wing reported to The Age that the drone had done what Energex had told him. "
In turn, Energex representative Danny Donald noted that there had been no damage to the 11,000 volts line and that Energex had responded quickly to the problem.
" The representative of Energex said. "
However, the drone was not run by children, but by Wing, whose drones were delivering food in three countries — the United States, Finland, and Australia. The company was particularly successful in Australia's suburbs, where delivery of products is worse than in the cities. As of August of last year, Wing was serving about 100,000 customers in Brisbane, and as of March of this year it had completed about 2,000 orders.
