Most drones are still radio controlled, that means there's a radio frequency at which the drone and the controller communicate with each other. If you can track down that frequency and broadcast a strong signal on it that overrules the communication between the drone and the controller, the drone effectively becomes useless.

Of course this doesn't go for every drone, but it does for the majority of them. Specially cheap drones intended for home customers.

You'd have to jam GPS signals too since any good drone returns home on it's own if the control signal is lost.

Check and mate. I had no idea drones incorporated that feature. Good feature for drone owners, but complicates drone counter-measures.

The solution is basically jamming equipment and counter measures. Law shold be simple - flew on Airport Restriction Zone = Drone shot down.

This is the only way to stop this.

I do not see really idiots/kids/morons flying them - I see at present covert environment activists behind all these drone activities and, crucially, nobody got caught yet.

There are a million reasons to NOT shoot anywhere near a airport. :wink2:

If you hit your target with your first shot, there are no bullets to fall on the neighbors. The only effective gun control is using both hands.

Yeah, because a thin plastic drone shell is going to stop a bullet dead in the air.

Plus the possibility of a ricochet if the bullet hits a hard part of the drone such as a motor.

With the possibility of killing two literal birds with one metaphorical stone, why not use raptors such as falcons to hunt drones? There are dozens of videos of eagles and similar birds attacking drones mid-flight on YouTube, and when they're not hunting drones they could help control or or scare away the other birds that are attracted to the open grassy spaces an airport provides.
Able to kill active threads stone dead with a single post!

'Dutch police will stop using drone-hunting eagles since they weren't doing what they're told'

One can say, that their products deliver....

But on a serious note, I believe that laser technology could be useful. Or use larger drone with a net.
