A drone is a generic name used to describe unmanned aerial vehicles and systems (UAV/UAS). These unmanned vehicles/systems are basically a flying robot which is remotely controlled through a combination of integrated software, hardware and sensors.
There is a wide range of drones available that can range between minutes to hours depending on the type of platform and application. Some of the more popular consumer level drones can fly on average between 5 to 30 minutes. A lot of variables such as wind speed, payload and size/type of aircraft can affect the flight range and duration of a drone.
In order to operate a drone in the United States, you first need to understand which agency manages the airspace and what type of drone flyer you’re going to be. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is responsible for all the governing rules and policies faa.gov/uas.
The maximum payload a drone can carry depends on its manufacturing specifications.
