I own A drone. Maybe you do, too. I use mine to make simple videos and annoy my dog. Drones are quite popular these days, and you can get a nice one without spending too much money. Oh, I’m talking about the remotely controlled flying vehicles with four rotors, not the bigger drones scientists use to study climate change and stuff. Those cost a lot of money.
Small drones like mine are easy to fly—a skilled pilot can hover and fly in just about any direction, which makes them great for recording video. But how does a drone actually fly? Ah, this is an excellent opportunity to look at some physics.
