What is a Drone?

"A drone is a flying robot that can be remotely controlled or fly autonomously through software-controlled flight plans in their embedded systems, working in conjunction with onboard sensors and GPS." (Rouse) Basically, a drone is an unmanned aircraft, or ship, remote controlled or controlled by a computer. For this project, I will focus on the aircraft aspect.
