Its very telling of the times we are in,you mention the word Drone to anybody,or type it in on line -(Google search)-the first image that comes up is of the man-made human - destroyers. Yet its probable the inventors of these killing machines pinched the name from The Drone Bee-(an important part of our natural world now becoming more scarce each day.) Is it right and proper to use names of killing machines after our threatened wildlife (let alone having them at all)?

Interesting ,Yes I remember working at British Aerospace and remember well several of the aircraft named after animals-Jaguar-also Am I correct in saying the Nazis invented the fore-runners to the modern Drone -V1 ,V2 ,V3?
Conceptually, I think the V1 and V2 led to the modern day cruise missile, but I'd suspect there's always been some crossover technology between guided missiles and unmanned airplanes. The V3, I think, was a super cannon.
ArtzGirl.you raise some important points here,under the answers section of HB ,-Games Toys and Hobbies,I raised a question directly related to what you are mentioning here,-Desensitisation of children using these horrific killing games,
