Everything about drones, from tips and reviews to buying guides, is here to help you become a better drone owner.

The term “Drones” refers to both unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) (UASes). A drone is a flying robot that can be remotely controlled or fly on its own with the use of software, sensors, and a Global Positioning System (GPS) embedded into the device.

Drones were formerly closely associated with the military, where they were used for anti-aircraft target practice and data gathering purposes. Search and rescue, surveillance, traffic monitoring, weather monitoring, and firefighting are just a few of the civic duties that drones are used for.
