Why a drone is called a drone?

During the interwar period, the development and testing of drones continued. In 1935, the British produced several drones for use as training objectives. It is believed that around this time the term “drone” began to be used, inspired by the name of one of these models, the DH 82B Queen Bee. Radio-controlled drones were also manufactured in the United States and were used for target shooting practice and training.

Years later, during World War I and World War II, engineers and companies built many unmanned vehicles. Archibald Low developed a radio guidance system for military drones without a pilot; however, they were not autonomous because they had to be launched mechanically. The army built a drone, an aerial torpedo, with a circuit to turn off the engine, but they fell to Earth during the flight. The British produced many radio-controlled aircraft for use for training purposes.

At that time, the term “drone” began to be used. Drones, sometimes referred to as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), carry out tasks that range from the most mundane to the most dangerous. There are many parts involved behind the scenes to facilitate the smooth operation of drones, so it's important to familiarize yourself with the remote or unmanned technology that makes up a drone system. Drones are commonly referred to as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), while the entire system that allows a drone to operate is a UAS (unmanned aerial system).
