不定詞To的問題

我們知道不定詞to 跟隨原形動詞是很基本的文法. 而在文法書敘述不定詞的各種用法中, 不曾見過 的範例. 但日前閱讀聯合報每周二( 06/09 )所附紐時中, 一篇標題為: Farmers' Work Gets Help From Above 見到以下句子:

第一段略過.

It is a drone( 由第一段知所指為無人飛機 ), and its pilot is a farmer named Jean Hediger, one of a growing number of American agrarians who have taken( to using) unmanned aircraft----better known for their use in war, far from the wheat fields of eastern Colorado---to gather information about the health of their corps.

以下略.

請問 何以可用 (to using) unmanned aircraft.

我們知道介係詞( for of about .....)等後常隨v-ing而 to 有時也用作 介係詞.但即使如此, 我也沒在文法書中找到先例) . 請先進指教.

    to take to ... =熱中於,耽於(習慣、嗜好等)

    He took to writing after he retired from the college.=他從大學退休後開始從事著述(寫作)。

    to take to drink (drinking) =耽於杯中物,喝酒上癮(drink是名詞/using是動名詞)

    to take to literature =迷上文學

    以上見《新世紀英漢辭典》 p.1409 take to解釋及例句

    American farmers have taken to using unmanned aircraft.=美洲農夫己經熱中於使用無人飛機

    I've taken to waking up very early.

    to take to = to begin to do something as a habit

    我己習慣每天早起。

    以上例句及說明取自牛津網路字典如上面的連結

    to take to ...take後面的to是「介系詞」,不是「不定詞的標記」,所以後面接的是「名詞」或「動名詞」。

    one of a growing number of American agrarians who have taken to using unmanned aircraft to gather information about the health of their corps

    越來越多美國農人已經開始使用無人飛機來偵查自己農作物的健康狀態,他是其中之一。

    have taken to using 是「開始使用」, take to 在這裡的意思是「開始這樣做」的意思。
