In this Jan. 16, 2014 image from video provided by Lakemaid Beer, a mini-drone lands with a 12-pack of beer for ice fishing anglers on Minnesota’s Lake Mille Lacs. Lakemaid president Jack Supple said he thought Amazon's package delivery plan would better be applied on a wide open frozen lake where ice anglers are manning their fishing holes in tiny shanties, but the Federal Aviation Administration heard him talking about his plans on the radio and grounded future deliveries.
