For me it's all the same. I could be wrong, though. I see that that "things" that fly like a plane are being referred to as UAVs, things that fly like helicopters are called drones. Would like to get educated myself on the proper term usage.

Here ya go lads:

A drone is an unmanned aircraft or ship that is guided remotely or autonomously. UAV stands for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, something that can fly without a pilot onboard.
You’ll most commonly hear the term Drone used by the media and military, and UAV used most often by the FAA. The words Drone and UAV mean the same thing, and can be used interchangeably. Both are aerial devices that can fly with a human remotely controlling them, or in the most advanced cases, fly themselves without any human intervention
