If you're an adult and semi-conscious of your environment, you've likely seen dozens of drones flying overhead by now with the ubiquitous and all too familiar droning buzz of the small aerial flying "machines.   Perhaps you too may be tempted to fly one or at least slightly-more-than curious about who flies these things, how to fly them or why the drones are becoming so popular.
