        You may have heard of the Predator drone. It is a well known bombing drone. According to DroneWars.com, it was first invented by a man named Abraham Karem. He made a company named Leading Systems. They made Amber and Gnat 750. They were later bought out by General Atomics.

One of the first times the Predator drone was almost used was around the year 2000. Topyaps.com says that some high up people in the government met to decide whether or not they should use a Predator drone to attack terrorist leaders. They decided against it. One week later, those terrorist leaders attacked the U.S.A. The attacks were called 9/11, after the date. It was a tragic loss.

        You may be bored with all this stuff about the Predator drone. Oh well. Here’s some more. TheNation.com says that the first drones flew around the year 2000. Around then, people met because they thought that Osama Bin Laden was seen, so they discussed whether or not they should bomb him. They decided not to. The CIA used unarmed drones before they started arming them. They eventually started arming them so that they could assassinate high-value terrorist leaders.

What Drones Are

        The most common name for drones is drones. There is actually an official name for drones. There are two, according to Wikipedia. One is UAV, and the other is UAS. UAV stands for unmanned aerial vehicle. UAS stands for unmanned aircraft system. Both mean a flying device that has no onboard pilot.Image result for rc stunt plane

        Now to the good stuff. It turns out that quadcopters are fun to fly (big surprise). A quadcopter is a four-propeller helicopter. They are the most common RC drones. DronesGlobe.com says that the Parrot AR drone 2.0 is the best drone to buy for under 200$. It actually is 200$ It has three designs: snow, jungle, and sand. It has a good prop protector. It definitely looks fun.Image result for ar parrot drone 2.0

Super Cool Facts That Will Blow Your Mind

        And now the part you have all been waiting for. Drumroll! May I now present: The Naviator! According to PopularMechanics.com, it is an octocopter in the shape of a quadcopter, but there is one propeller underneath the normal four. It can go above or under water. It is shaped like a quadcopter, but there are four extra propellers underneath each of the top ones. The inventors hope that we can use things like this to watch or fix underwater things. You can fly it over the area, drop it down, and check on things. Then when you are done, you just go up and fly it out of the water.Image result for naviator
