The Eagle has landed — the Flirtey Eagle drone, that is.

Reno-based drone delivery company Flirtey showed off the new drone that it will be using once it starts to deliver packages by air later this year. The company unveiled its drone on Monday at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

Looking like a white, squarish igloo with four propeller arms, the Flirtey Eagle can house a package inside its body, which it then lowers with a tether after it arrives at its designated delivery spot. The Eagle boasts a sizable payload and can accommodate about 75% of all packages that are sent to consumers for last-mile delivery, the company said.
