If you're used to thinking of drones as a passing fad, last week's CES gadget show should give you second thoughts.The Consumer Technology Association estimates that U.S. consumer drone spending will more than double to $953 million next year.As drone capabilities grow, drones may become a mass-market product for average consumers in about three years, says Patrick Moorhead, principal analyst of research firm Moor Insights & Strategy.
