Being a huge enthusiast of drones, Sohan wanted to execute his skills and put them into use to develop an autonomous drone that could deliver a pizza without the help of a pilot. He developed a self-flying drone with all his experiences and skills and some jugaad as well. The entire framing and programming were done in a way so that the drone can fly pilotless. Initially, the project crashed a few times, but the self-flying drone got all ready to take off without a pilot after some repairs.

To enhance all the facilities and services, Sohan added a dropping mechanism as well whose function is to drop the delivery packages on the ground.

After receiving the pizza from a Pizza Hut outlet, he headed straight to an open area and loaded the order into the self-flying drone. The address of the delivery location was about 1.5 km away and he uploaded the exact delivery route to the drone so that the delivery takes place seamlessly inside the compound. Sohan flew another drone along with this self-flying device to record its journey. In just some time, the pizza reached its owner, that too in proper condition.
