    General Atomic's Avenger drone has a wingspan of 66 feet and can carry 3000 pounds in its weapons bay. I'm sure if drones get the OK to be used for commercial package delivery their cargo capacity will get much, much larger. And no, they won't be used to deliver packages to people's houses any more than FedEx uses jets to deliver packages door to door.  These drones will be used to deliver large quantities of packages from one processing center to another.
