    Isn't signal jamming illegal? And does it output on 72mHz control and 3.3ghz video?

    In the private sector yes.

    I like the bird interceptor idea. Nothing fancy. Just a superior pilot at the helm

    If it is broken, fix it. if it isn't broken, I'll soon fix that.

    Wait, why don't they just use another drone to capture it directly? Have some strings hanging down from an agile miniquad. Those would get stuck in props, and bring both down.

    How could a mini quad take down a fast fixed-wing, for example? The problem is that there are so many types of drones that it is difficult or impossible for a single strategy to be effective against all of them. The jamming gun is great against Phantoms, but it would not be very effective against most FPV aircraft. For example something like the Eagletree Vector would attempt to RTH in a jamming scenario, but assuming the jamming gun also jams the GPS, it would fall back to 2D mode (fly straight and level) until it was out of range of the jamming source. And the net gun? Yeah, good luck with that against a fast moving plane.

    I think using the interceptor birds is really kinda cool. So long as their feet don't get cut up, it's one of the best ideas I think.

    I'm not going to downvote anything, I think this technology is needed in some cases. Joe Schmoe is not going to be able to buy a jamming gun anytime soon (although he could make one easily, but using it would be illegal).

    "The best idea" + 500 size single rotor UAV = Explosion of feathers, blood, electronics + random debris. Let's not forget possible lawsuits, and PETA. Oh the humanity!!
