    One guy says call Drones "RPVs" and that Quadcopter is wrong, another refers to Drones as "UAVs".

    Seems like a mash-up to me and click-bait.

    Funny that point 1 is that calling them drones is wrong, then they go on calling them drones throughout the rest of the article.

    some good points are made, but unfortunately the reading seems to contradict itself as well.

    I doubt it was written by a learned scholar with a degree

    but interesting none the less

    The article was interesting but they didn't agree with on what to call them. Hmmm I call mine a Phantom.

    Every fly-boy out there (...anyone a basic pilot license that ever rented a Piper Cub or above) will immediately blow spittle and snot screaming, "It will TOO take down an airplane!"
