See How Wonderful Drone Will Make Life More Pleasant

The idea to have Unmanned aircraft is over one hundred fifty years old.  Austria attacked Venice way back on Aug. 22, 1849,  by dispatching balloons laden with bombs. They were activated by the electromagnetic waves. The strike made little damage, but Venice surrendered two days later.

 Unmanned radio-controlled aircraft called ‘Flying Bomb’ got used in the First world war in 1916.   The British Royal Navy used pilotless aircraft named  Queen Bee in 1935.  That was in a real sense the forerunner of the present day drone. The electromagnetic radio waves could repeatedly operate it.
Aircraft engineer Abraham Karem is known the father of drone. He made the versions called Amber and predator.
