This would be another good use of them.

I myself believe that we should toy and manipulate DNA as much as we wish. I
was only referring to the luddites against genetic manipulation.

Another use for these biological drones could be for venturing onto other
planets supporting life. We could take native biological life on another
planet and create a drone so that we could be uploaded to a box in the
drones head and control it through an interface between bio motor functions
and the box.
