    I think the tanker (boom operator) does the adjustments during mid-air refueling while the aircraft being refueled maintains a constant distance and speed relative to the tanker. I think this will be no different in mid-air refueling of UAVs.

    true but UAV pilot has also to make adjustment sitting miles away...and top that with being in different situation....tougher than landing...!!
