A drone is an unmanned aircraft. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or unmanned aircraft systems are the more formal names for drones. Essentially, a drone is a flying robot that can be remotely controlled or fly on its own utilizing software-controlled flight plans in its embedded systems, which collaborate with onboard sensors and a global positioning system (GPS).
The military was most frequently linked to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Initially, they were utilized as platforms for weapons, anti-aircraft target practice, and, more divisively, intelligence gathering. Today, drones are utilized in a variety of civilian contexts, such as the following:
The cost of a drone often varies based on the manufacturing method. The cost is between 100,000 and 300,000 Kenyan Shillings.
Why do drones fly?
Flight mode and navigation are the two fundamental drone functions.
Drones require a power source, such as a battery or fuel, in order to fly. They also have a frame, rotors, and propellers. To minimize weight and improve maneuverability, drone frames are often composed of lightweight composite materials.
Drones need a controller, which enables the user to launch, steer, and land the aircraft via remote controls. Radio waves, such as Wi-Fi, are used by controllers to connect with the drone.
