To unlock this achievement you must destroy all the drones before they do damage to any civilians in the mission entitled "First Flight" which is the 2nd mission. This achievement can be unlocked during any difficulty but I highly recommend this on Easy.

This achievement can be tricky especially since this is your first largest boss fight in which you are flying. Just make sure when the Gunship drops his drones (there will be three of them each drop) that you kill them. I recommend at this point to turn your power systems to weapons. The drones are marked as YELLOW.

Below is my guide on how to beat this level (it was written for the hardest difficulty but still works just fine for easy mode):

Mission 2: First Flight

Leave your Power Distribution set to Life Support (up on the d-pad) the whole level (except when they ask you to for the tutorial).

The first part of this mission is of no concern since it is just a tutorial on how to fly.

After you finish the flight tutorial you will be prompted by Pepper and you must protect Stark Industries from being attacked. Mostly these are of no concern you will defeat several groups of ground troops, then destroy six or seven transport vehicles, and then you will have to take out several transport airships while fighting off helicopters. The helicopters are your main concern since they can tear your armor up pretty good. Ideally you want to not lose a reboot up until the boss fight however losing 1 or 2 is just fine. After you defeat the transport airships (or they leave) the boss fight will start.

You will have to take out the Gunship (the boss). This poses no issues as long as you at least have 1 or 2 reboots left. If you want to go ahead and divert power to your weapon systems. Easiest way to take him out is by the air, the gunship cannot be grappled. Keep your distance and constantly fire your repulors (hold RT) and use missiles (press Y) when available. When he drops drones ignore the gunship and place ALL your attention on the three drones, they are mark in YELLOW. Kill them before they do any damage and then finish off the gunship for a quick achievement.
