What are drones?
Drones are a form of aircraft that can be remotely controlled. The implication is that they can be flown without a pilot on board. This also comes with an extra benefit of the drone coming in a smaller size since they can operate without a pilot, crew and passengers are not expected.
The major reason drones were developed was for military usage. They could be used to attack dangerous enemy locations such that even when the drone is brought down, there will not be casualties in terms of military personnel or humans.
Of course, it would be almost impossible for an individual to order a military-type drone even if they could afford it for obvious security reasons.
However, there are now drones that could be used for other activities apart from military attacks.
What are the most popular drones?
The most popular drones are currently those used by photographers for photographing events. With the aid of drones, on which cameras have been attached, photographers can easily get different aerial angles of an event that would make for more beautiful and interesting pictures.
Drones are also used in shooting videos both for events and for movies.
What kinds of drones are there?
The two kinds of drones available are those for military use and those for civilian use. The military-type drones are used for spying on enemies and attacking enemies. Some of them can carry bombs and guns. They are remotely controlled and the weapons on them can also be remotely activated or unleashed.
However, the type that is available for the public is the civilian type of drones. This type can be used for photography and as toys for kids. However, it would often be best for an adult to stay with kids playing with drones to avoid injuries.
