Aeronautical modeling brings together all the disciplines intended for piloting model aircraft, a real flight reduction machine. This model aircraft can take the form of airplanes, gliders, helicopters, hot air balloons, and is used for the most common types of machines ... But it can also be the crystallization of the imagination ... or a replica of a previous or version of an existing aircraft. In this case, we are talking about the flight model.
The UAV is a model remotely operated aircraft, which means there is no pilot. It carries a payload and can perform various tasks: surveillance, intelligence, mapping, transportation, and video.
For more than two decades, drones have been developed in France and used for military purposes, surveillance and intelligence missions. Drone technology has been applied in the civil field for several years.
