    Hi All
    I have just seen the news, on a report that A Drone strike, Has killed 2 / Said, "British" citizens in Syria.

    I sincerely hope it was not a R/C Quadcopter, that did this, as you all like to call Quad copters, Drones

    Now what do you say ? THEY ARE NOT DRONES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I believe in this case an unmanned Ariel vehicle conducted a strike against ground targets

    I am not sure... are you trying to be sarcastic?
    It was an RAF Reaper drone which weighs close to 10,000lbs when fueled.
    No one confuses a Phantom with this...

    I also edited your 'click bait' title and moved it to the correct location. ;)

    I thought this was about a collision between a drone and an airplane in the UK

    Title trickery

    A UAV killed 2 people. A drone killed two people.
    I fly a drone. I pilot a UAV.

    I'm comfortable saying any of the above. I understand what each sentence means.

    When I was a boy I had a dog named Bullet. I knew, as did my friends and family, that when we heard someone was killed by a bullet, my dog was not responsible.

    Most people are like that with drones, and know my little drone is not the same as a military drone.
