KFC fly-thru: Drone gets chicken wings for Auckland couple
An innovative Auckland man with a hankering for some fried chicken wings has shown just how to order KFC by drone.
Mr Mason-Clarke told NZME it wasn't a publicity promotion for the fast-food restaurant, but "just a fun project I wanted to do".
One commenter on the Facebook post has mentioned the story of the Australian man who was fined AU$9000 for using a drone to get a sausage from a Bunnings sausage sizzle, but Mr Mason-Clarke told NZME he followed Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) guidelines.
He says he flew the drone to Lynfield KFC as the drive-thru is on the edge of a park, so the drone didn't fly over any roads.
KFC says Mr Mason-Clarke had worked with the company to make sure the project followed health and safety rules.
"It's a cleverly constructed and fun piece of fan-made content by the King of Cheat Meals," the spokeswoman said.
