Drone Smone. It’s a remote control helicopter, right?

I remember kids having remote control helicopters and airplanes back in the 70’s. So what’s the difference now? Why is it called a drone? Can someone stop by our studio and demonstrate the difference for me, a novice?

I can see why the FAA wants them all registered now–because (some owners are) idiots own them. But is it the FAA that determines drone versus remote control chopper?
