Fans of Golden Age sf great Raymond Z. Gallun stand in awe of his 1936 classic The Scarab, which gives an amazing preview of the very idea for this cool little drone, with its minute vision tubes for transmitting its tiny POV back to the operator::

...the Scarab buzzed into the great workroom as any intruding insect might, and sought the security of a shadowed corner. There it studied its surroundings, transmitting to its manipulator, far away now, all that it heard through its ear microphones and saw with its minute vision tubes.
