In December, the Wall Street Journal reported that Wing — the drone delivery company that spun out from Google — was annoying residents in the Australian town where it tests its services.




On Friday, a Wing spokesperson confirmed with Business Insider that it has begun testing a quieter drone that "blends in" with nearby residential sounds.




Neighbors in the report likened the sounds of the original delivery drones to a “chain saw gone ballistic."



Nine days ago, the Wall Street Journal reported on complaints from residents of Bonython, the Australian township where Wing, the drone delivery company spun out of Google, had set up shop.
Wing is testing using drones to deliver everyday staples like groceries, hardware, and over-the-counter medicines. Townspeople compared the sounds of Wing's delivery drones as a “chain saw gone ballistic," causing some to spend less time outside, even as it caused the town's canine population a considerable amount of anxiety.
