### Refueling Drones

I read in the news that the US have got unman drones to refuel from one drone to another. which got my thinking If a single drone has a range of 1r then to land back at the take off point it can go at most 1r/2 out and 1r/2 back. If you had 2 drones you could have both take of fly 1r/3 then one refu...
