An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), commonly known as a drone, is an aircraft without a human pilot aboard and here is a gallery of top RC drones.

UAVs are a component of an unmanned aircraft system (UAS); which include a UAV, a ground-based controller, and a system of communications between the two. The flight of UAVs may operate with various degrees of autonomy: either under remote control by a human operator or autonomously by onboard computers.

There are numerous civilian, commercial, military, and aerospace applications for UAVs. These include:

Civil: Disaster relief, archeology, conservation of biodiversity and habitat, law enforcement, crime, and terrorism
