Angry residents living down noisy drone delivery flight path call for service near their homes to be banned, but one neighbor LOVES it
- Residents living in Logan, Brisbane have criticized the Wing drone delivery service
- They assure that the drones, which fly over their houses, cause them stress
- However, one resident revealed that he is a fan of the cheap delivery service.
Angry residents have attacked a drone delivery company, complaining that the noise the devices make is driving them crazy.
Drone delivery services have been introduced to suburban Australia, but residents in the Logan area south of Brisbane say the initiative, run by company Wing, is causing them stress.
Wing said it has made more than 75,000 deliveries this year in Logan alone, including fast food and drinks, as well as small grocery items.
“I feel upset, but sometimes it stresses me out,” resident Dan Ling told A Current Affair.
“You are relaxing after working all day and you hear the buzz like a very loud mosquito and it gets louder and louder.

Dan Ling says noise from drones flying over his home in Logan, Brisbane causes them stress
“We feel like we are prisoners of this noise. We have to close the front door because you can hear it coming.
Mr. Ling’s house saw eight drones fly over it during his conversation with A Current Affair.
However, Dale Carter, who lives in the same suburb as Mr. Ling, says he uses the delivery service every day and loves it.
“A soda can and a nice little bottle of water,” Carter said. ‘For a can of drink it was only $1.25, which is pretty cheap.
‘I don’t see much of a problem with that. If you have the road through here, you hear cars and trucks. Is no different.
In a statement to A Current Affair, a Wing spokesperson said it only received a handful of complaints over several years of operation.
Wing also operates out of Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory, delivering coffee, food, medicine and hardware supplies.
The drones leave each package at the door.

Last year Wing stopped its service in Canberra after bizarre footage of strange bird attacks surfaced.
Wing temporarily halted flights in parts of suburban Harrison while local bird experts investigated the behavior of the territorial animals.
The company first launched on ACT in 2019 and became very popular during the COVID-19 lockdown with 10,000 deliveries made.
