A passenger aircraft from a company with less than stellar safety records. What could possibly go wrong? :)

I would feel a lot safer in a traditional helicopter.

At least you have autorotation techniques that can be utilised in the event of power failure or tail rotor issues.  What emergency facilities do their unpiloted aircraft have?

Bad plane food or hitting a flying pig ?   ;D

A pedal set up to drive the propellers.  It is a known fact that people would pedal like hell on their way to their death.  I believe my city has become a "drone" city and Uber is suppose to test delivering food by drones.  I am trying to contact them to sign up.  If Uber ever delivers a hot dog to me, I will upload a pic.   :-DD

A very long and detailed contract absolving UBER of any and all liability.
