Drones are great for a lot of things, but cooking certainly isn’t one of them. Autel Robotics knows as much, but that didn’t stop the company from compiling some great tips for how to use its X-Star Premium quadcopter to prepare your Thanksgiving feast.

The quadcopter handled the entire meal: mashed potatoes, carrots with parsley, pumpkin pie, and of course, turkey. While it made perfectly adequate, but decidedly messy, work of the meal, it wasn’t what you’d call practical — with one exception: the drone-delivered turkey. Dropping a turkey into a deep fryer is dangerous work, and leads to millions in damages due to fire each year. A drone-delivery system seems like real innovation.

Still, if you wanted to stick to using a chef knife and crying about how long it takes and how you’re most definitely not doing this next year — we feel you.
