Due to recent advancements in quantum drones, the Internet of Quantum Drones (IoQDs), and Drone-to-Satellite connectivity, several advantages have been anticipated for real-time applications. This work examines quantum computing issues, including quantum data processing, techniques, circuits, and algorithms important for quantum drones or their networks. Here, we discussed the current research trends on quantum computing, quantum-safe computing, or post-quantum cryptography important to quantum networks, followed by the numerous advantages, limitations, future advancements, and research issues
connected with quantum technologies, drones, and their network. This work has also prepared a taxonomy of quantum-related areas depending upon the logic of their learning, followed by a review of each of these areas. We review the most recent work over quantum algorithms used in various-quantum-related areas
and networks, the role of quantum satellites for drone-based networks and communications, how quantum artificial intelligence and quantum machine learning are important for quantum drones, networks and futuristic applications, quantum attacks, quantum genetic algorithms, and the importance of post-quantum and quantum-safe cryptography. The challenges and research directions in these domains are explored as well. Lastly, this work presents an overview of the current state of knowledge in various promising technologies that are recently found to be important for quantum drones and networks.
