What Is Drone and Its Specifications?
TechBulliom | 11/10/2021
Currently, the word "drone" is used to describe a flying electronic device, which can be directed by remote control (or even a cell phone) and, mainly in common sense, makes us think of a small toy "helicopter" that we can use for the most diverse functions.
The correct terminology to refer to "drones" is Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). Within the UAV category, we have the Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA), which are the ones that usually come to mind when we think about drones, and the Autonomous Aircraft, whose use is completely prohibited in Brazil. The drones that are sold in stores and appear on sale here on Promobit, therefore, are in the RPA category and that's what we'll discuss throughout this article.
