Their arrival to Canberra's skies was marked by complaints from resident groups and concern over noise levels.
However, it appears many in Gungahlin have taken full advantage of food and groceries being able to be delivered by drone as the coronavirus crisis goes on.
Drone delivery company Wing said the number of drop-offs it had made to people's homes had increased 500 per cent between February and April during the height of the pandemic.
The company's head of Australian operations Terrance Bouldin-Johnson, said more people had taken to drone delivery during COVID-19 as a way of staying more socially distant.
"Essentially, we saw a big uptick in items such as toilet paper and toothpaste," Mr Bouldin-Johnson said.
"There was also a combination of things, we had current customers and the majority of them continued to order new things while we also saw a lot of brand new customers."
The service, which has been able to deliver food, coffee and items from the chemist, have been able to make drone deliveries to homes in Crace, Palmerston, Franklin and Harrison in Canberra's north.
Among those living in Gungahlin who took to ordering more items to be delivered from the skies was Franklin resident Naomi Le Lievre.
Ms Le Lievre said while she had been ordering drone deliveries occasionally for the past year, that number shot up when other businesses started closing at the start of the pandemic.
"We definitely increased our usage when all the coffee shops shut down, and then we got it delivered to our driveway, that way we didn't have to leave the house," Ms Le Lievre said.
"We got coffee several times a week, and my daughter's loved getting toasted sandwiches."
While the number of deliveries Wing has made in recent months has spiked, the company has not said if any future locations for its drones would open up in the near future, despite more people becoming interested in the service.
"I would say we're taking the process day by day, and we have identified some places to where to go to next, and we're open to discussion, but it's about having a conversation with the community first," Mr Bouldin-Johnson said.
"We've considered a bunch of different areas in Canberra [to fly in], but we haven't identified any specific suburbs to move into."
Any approval for Project Wing to expand to other areas as coronavirus measures continue would have to be signed off by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority.
Authority spokesman Peter Gibson said approvals for safe drone deliveries were being prioritised during the pandemic.
"Drone deliveries can provide essential items to communities that are in lockdown and to vulnerable people who may need to isolate," Mr Gibson said.
"CASA recognises the value of drone deliveries to move essential supplies like testing kits and personal protective equipment to medical and aged-care facilities."
