It’s Okay to Call Them Drones. Seriously, That’s What They’re Called

Hi everyone, 

Although it is less of an issue for the DIY/hobby end of things (we all seem able to use the word 'drone' without thinking of hellfire missiles), but I've been getting pretty tired of the argument in wider circles and dancing around trying not…
