Definition of drone
Before we talk about the possibilities of using drones, it's good to talk about what a drone actually is. Basically, it is an unmanned aircraft that can be controlled safely from the ground. Some versions are even automatic, however, most of the time an operator is needed to control it.
There are a plethora of types that differ from each other not only in size, but also in propulsion, and, of course, purpose. The possibilities of how to use such a device are truly endless.
Given the war currently raging in Ukraine, probably everyone who at least occasionally glances at the news would think of combat activity in conjunction with drones. Yes, drones have been used for killing for many decades, and their importance will increase in the future thanks to modern technology.
Combat drones may well be small, inconspicuous fliers, but they often carry charges that they drop through their operator on suitable targets. The better-equipped models are close in appearance to aircraft and are armed accordingly. They are often capable of launching high-explosive missiles.
Drones, of course, do not only kill, but can instead give people pleasure. Indeed, many types are used as flying postmen. This service is mainly used in some countries in the West, and even there it is still in its infancy. Nevertheless, the idea is certainly not a bad one.
In this way it is possible to quickly, but more importantly, safely deliver a parcel even to places where it would be very difficult and slow to get to. Since the drone does not have to overcome any terrain obstacles, it has a big advantage over other methods of transport.
Perhaps in every film there are several high-altitude shots of the city or nature. Previously, a helicopter had to be ordered for this, which was obviously quite expensive. Today, however, it is possible to use a far less expensive drone.
Moreover, you don't need to have something extra special for this purpose. It is enought just to get a model with a sufficiently high-quality camera. Such can already be found for quite decent money.
It definitely costs less than an hour-long helicopter ride. Charging speed is also an advantage. If the shots don't work the first time, just leave the machine in the charger for a while, then send it back into action.
