What about full size drones?

Let's take it from the top: it depends on the drone
Regular, off the shelf hobby drones, might just turn off and then fall to their doom. Some more expensive ones, might have a feature to safely land (instead of dropping like a rock).
Considering military ones, it all depends on the programming and the manufacturer. Some drones have parachutes, so that could aid them when they run out of juice.
