WHAT IS A DRONE?
A pilot less aircraft operated by remote control
Definition of a drone as given in the free online dictionary is as under:-
1. A male bee, especially a honey bee, that is characteristically stingless, performs no work, and produces no honey. Its only function is to mate with the queen bee.
2. A pilotless aircraft operated by remote control.
So the reason these pilotless aircrafts have been named as drones is probably due to their physical shape which is highly similar to drones, i.e. the male bees.
