Drones and haters of

Here's a new toy for those that find drones a nuisance.

I like the jamming of them and since the FCC hasn't rules it illegal yet, jam on.

We live 3 miles or so from an airport that has some International flights and a number of domestic flights. I've seen a few small drones that people are 'playing' with because they think it is fun. We live in the country and people park alongside a country road, and figure since there are no taller buildings that they can fly these contraptions wherever they wish. I'm not above swatting one of these things if they are flying low enough to bother me whilst I'm mowing the lawn.

Wasn't there a homeowner who got arrested recently for shooting some dude's drone down with his shotgun? I think the neighbor's drone kept hovering in that homeowner's backyard to take video shots and spy on him and and his family while they were on their back porch or something. He finally got tired of it and blasted the drone out of the sky. The drone's owner then called the cops on the homeowner for destroying his $1500 drone, and the cops hauled him away. Thinking-about

As far as I'm concerned, when a drone starts hovering over a homeowner's back yard for long periods of time, I think that's an invasion of privacy or a potential danger to the homeowner's physical safety (what if the drone falls on him, or pokes his eye out?)

Not sure a standard shotgun shell would be the safest way to "take care of the problem", but if I were on a jury, I'd likely find the homeowner innocent and levy a hefty fine on the drone's "pilot" for the cost of the shotgun shell, the cost of having to clean the homeowner's shotgun after the blast, cost of wear and tear on the shotgun barrel and a healthy punitive fine for disturbing the peace and intentional violation of the homeowner's privacy.

I bet someone could invent some sort of cheaper "jamming solution", something like a low-brass 12-guage shell that contained some sort of "expanding net" that would mess up a drone's propellers, be somewhat less noisy than a standard birdshot shell, and reduce the risk of lead shotgun pellets raining down upon an unsuspecting neighborhood... Maybe even make the expanding net out of recycled biodegradable materials, so it's nice and green (for the environment's sake, of course)?

Yes there was a case like that in NJ and Kentucky. Problem with shotgun shells, or any projectile, is if they miss, they have to land somewhere. Florida and other states have passed privacy laws but I see drones being outlawed in states soon.

That's why someone might want to invent a nice, fluffy, biodegradable 'earth-friendly' expandable net contained within a low-brass 12-guage shell that would catch up the drone's props, sorta like a mini-fish net. Everyone likes fishing, after all. Bigwink

Or, you could do what this guy did with a fishing rod & line...

This is going to be a huge problem since the bad guys will have a field day with these readily available and cheap drones. I shudder to think about the biological warfare apps that they will no doubt come up with to pull off their evil missions, not to mention the ease of which they will find in knocking out the engine/engines on jet planes. I don't see any viable defense methods. Sad

They do make drones that could take out the nuisance ones:[Image: predator-b-drone-mq-9-reaper.jpg] BananaBanana

Now that we're on this subject, it makes me realize that if the marvel of flight had never been harnessed we would be better off, all things considered.

They apparently are big around prisons. Sending drones to fly over and drop contraband in the yard. At least in Florida the one thing in prison's favor is the remote location makes it pretty difficult to hide and operate a drone. Regardless there will always be some "due-mass" that will try it.
