Isn't every radio controlled aircraft a drone?  There must be hundreds of thousands of them.  There are even model airfields where people go to fly them.

My thoughts exactly. I was an RC enthusiast as a teenager in the late 60's. While my creations were pitiful, some of the guys had very capable aircraft; and the use of cameras in model airplanes and rockets was common.

In the post World War II and Korean War era the Army Antiaircraft Artillery did artillery practice by firing at drones which were called Radio Controlled Aerial Targets (RCATs) in those days. The radar-computer aimed 75mm gun shot down too many. It was cheaper to let the artillery fire at a sleeve pulled by a prop-plane with a long cable.

It is getting hard to find 12 gauge shotgun shells with BB shot.  That will bring down a drone, or can be used to stand your ground.

I saw a news story where members of a hunting club shot down a camera-equipped RC plane with their shotguns.

A group was filming them doing live bird target shooting (where they release caged birds instead of launching clays), and I guess the hunters disapproved of the press.

Drones were first flown during WW I. I believe at least one British type was radio controlled. Also, under Operation Aphrodite, drones were used during WW II. They rigged B-17s to be flown remotely, but required pilots to get them airborne before bailing out. Joseph Kennedy Jr., JFK's brother died when the drone he had taken off was being armed.

My rural brother bought himself a French hovering drone for his birthday. Under 400 bucks, high def camera, controlled intuitively using your iphone. Turkish protesters were using them to record police brutality from the air.
