Amazon’s drone delivery program is encountering significant challenges, particularly in handling high summer temperatures. The latest MK30 drones, for instance, are unable to operate in temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) or higher. Despite these limitations, Amazon is moving forward with its drone delivery initiative, recently launching air delivery services in Arizona, a region known for its extreme summer heat.
