I've always found it so strange that remote control aircraft are referred to as drones. The dictionary.com folkes have even changed the definition a bit to fit it's popular use.

drone

[drohn]

noun

1.

the male of the honeybee and other bees, stingless and making no honey.

 

2. an unmanned aircraft or ship that can navigate autonomously, without human control or beyond line of sight

the GPS of a U.S. spy drone.

(loosely) any unmanned aircraft or ship that is guided remotely:

a radio-controlled drone.
