In the paper a possibility of drones application in length and angle metrology was discussed. Some basic issues of metrology in mechanical engineering scale was presented. The use of drones for micro, meso and macro scale was briefly described. Different options and configurations were shown, including benefits and possible problems. Uncertainty issues were also discussed. From that point of view the future of drones in metrology looks bright, as it is also in other areas of human life. Due to rising labor costs, replacing a human being by a system solution is very desirable.
