Funny story.  We in the hobby have been doing that for ages.  It's really really hard.  Aiming anything in a dog fight is near impossible, especially at the scale you are playing with.

However, if you have a spare ground operator, do this.  Get a laser pointer, strong one.  build a laser guided missile drone.  (drone = tracking cone, rocket body, control surface fins (or gyro), rocket motor (or EDF))  Point, launch, laugh.

It's actually really simple, and can be done cheaply.  If you were interested, I would be remiss in not pointing you to the wiki article for the sidewinder missile.  The tracking mechanism used here can be adapted easily and cheaply, and you can make it at home.

And do not try to tell anyone "the article says it isn't dangerous".
It IS dangerous in the hands of someone who does not take proper precautions.
There are MANY ways to come to serious and permanent harm with such a device.

I came in here to be the first person to mention curtains. I see its been covered, so I'll ask a relevant question.

What is it with white people living in DC who have no curtains on their windows? I'm not talking about having the curtains pulled back or having the blinds open. I'm talking about the complete lack of anything resembling a window cover. It's CRAZY to me. I would be totally uncomfortable there.

I agree that legislation will likely have to catch up with this, but for now it doesn't really appear that it has.

How hasn't it?  Every state has a law prohibiting the use of audio or video equipment to peep on people on their own property.

For instance, in South Carolina:

South Carolina Code > Title 16 > Chapter 17 > § 16-17-470 - Eavesdropping, peeping, voyeurism
(B) A person commits the crime of voyeurism if, for the purpose of arousing or gratifying sexual desire of any person, he or she knowingly views, photographs, audio records, video records, produces, or creates a digital electronic file, or films another person, without that person's knowledge and consent, while the person is in a place where he or she would have a reasonable expectation of privacy. A person who violates the provisions of this subsection:

(1) for a first offense, is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined not more than five hundred dollars or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; or

(2) for a second or subsequent offense, is guilty of a felony and, upon conviction, must be fined not less than five hundred dollars or more than five thousand dollars or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.

I've built that.  And a sonic cannon, and a tesla cannon and an alpha emitter, and many other dangerous things along the same lines.

Yeah, most people here aren't qualified to play with this stuff.  Most of the plans available are garbage and either don't work, or didn't account for some important secondary effect.  BUT, the point is, yes, someone of us build things in our spare time.

Also, someone up thread asked for a directional EMP.  HERE
Get copper core wire (solid core, not threaded) and wrap it around an M80.  Connect both ends to a 9v battery connected to a camera flash module.  Charge the flash.  When you trigger the flash, it pulses, you also have the fuse of the M80 wired to a squib (rocket motor igniter) and so when you trigger the flash, the fuse triggers and the M80 goes off while the copper you wrapped it in is energized.  This will create an EMP burst moving in the direction of the explosion.  (generally from fuse to butt).  If you put a parabolic shield behind the explosion, the emp goes the opposite way.  It's not as directional as it could be, but then it only costs about 2$.  You can greatly improve this system by making your own M80's with directional burn tubes.  (make a small funnel shape to the tube you pack with explosives)  And using a really good EM reflector.

The entire package is the size of a pack of smokes, and it's entirely self contained.  of course, it's also single use.

you are pretty representative.
I doubt we will see a lot of spying "drones" because they are to noisy, to easy to spot, and then easy to take down. The proven thechniques will stay in use for spys or voyeurs, and there are not so much of those.
But a lot of people will hope to be spyed on, just like the ones who hope to be assaulted or to have their house brocken in, so they have a good reason for massive retaliation.
Oh boy, gotta be even more careful with my model aircrafts

As a white guy who grew up in the suburbs, there are a couple of possibilities:
1) curtains are expensive and I spent way too much on this house to afford them right now.
2) I want everyone to see how awesome the paint, renovated brick walls, and quirky decor items in my place are

The whole 'new city resident' thing doesn't totally wash.  In the burbs we have curtains and drapes in the private areas of the house (bedroom, etc), if for no other reason than to keep the sun out during the summer.  But it's not uncommon to have no window treatment over the front living room, as long as there isn't a sun issue.

akula: While I'd love to use my skeet skills on one of those (if I had such a douchey neighbor), in an actual neighborhood that's not really responsible.

I do wonder if that wasp spray that shoots 25' or so would fark up one of those things. A garden hose very likely would.


A tennis ball would probably do some serious damage to one of those, and would be quite safe in a residential neighborhood.  A kickball would most definitely take one out of the sky, but with that you stand a better chance of taking out a window.  I do wonder, though, what one of those nerf guns (the ones that shoot the plastic darts) would do to a mini drone?  (Especially with a reinforced, hard plastic tip.)  Oh yeah, frisbees!

To all those who keep saying, "Close your curtains," why should we have to do so?  Why do we have to alter our behavior because some douchenozzle is doing something that is quite possibly illegal?  Some of us like natural light and therefore keep the blinds or curtains open.  We should not have to alter our lives because of some social deviant.

PsyLord: Kahabut: Gabrielmot: akula: noitsnot: You can get rubber shot that should be just the ticket.  Just break the props and bye bye.

Or - Anything that can throw a loop of string or wire across it would foul the props.

Heck, even a snakeshot load out of something like a .38spl would be sufficient. But again, if the trajectory would have pellets leaving your own yard I'd recommend against it. Wire or some kind of net, though, that would be quite effective. I have a travel laundry sack that is plastic mesh; it would jam those props solid. Then I can introduce it to Mr. Sledgehammer.

I was thinking, what about a paintball gun that fired ice? Not sure how possible that would be, but the evidence would melt pretty quickly.

Just fire paintballs.  In most places, that's not illegal.  It'll be more than enough to down the drone.

Keep in mind guys, most of these drones are operating within a hair of their maximum lifting weight.  It doesn't take a whole lot to knock them down.

A string with a fishing weight on it is more than enough in most cases.  Anything that hits even just one rotor will stop it cold, and the drone will crash shortly.

Also, these things are not cheap, the ones used for photography are 600$ and up PLUS the cost of a good camera.  I'm thinking ransom it back to the owner/operator.

You don't.  Feel free to leave your curtains open.   You don't need a drone to see in people's windows, so there's really nothing new here that any kid with a telephoto lens couldn't check out from the right vantage point.  The RC vehicle just makes it easier and more obvious.

You are correct sir. Not only is it not as bad as people think, crime for most people isn't a factor of minority or even "poor" - it's teenagers. Whatever the race/ethnicity/socioeconomic demographic of teenagers are near you, that's who will be committing most of the crimes.

I also agree with you on window coverings. Criminals [generally speaking] aren't scoping your place out, they saw an opportunity and took it on the spur of the moment.

Wrong frequency.  And most RC vehicles (which everyone now calls drones, incorrectly) use frequency hopping radios.  They are not super easy to jam.  It's also illegal under current FCC rules.  (so is that cell phone jammer).

That being said, it can be done, just not with a cell jammer.

//a WAY over spec WIFI will do the job, but it'll melt after a while.

I hope this leads to anti-drone drones. Seems like it would be pretty simple to take one out by dropping a net or even rope onto the rotors.

Screw the shotgun nonsense.  That's a free RC for the taking, shooting it up is just a waste.

Good point, I do have a large dip net.

QueenMamaBee: So is every un-manned flying object a "drone" now, or is that simply a toy helicopter with a camera on it?


What do you mean "now"?  When was there a definition of "drone" that specified that some unmanned flying objects were drones and some weren't?

Pray 4 Mojo: Just get a Daisy... pump it 20 or 30 times... and pour a bunch of BB's down the barrel.

This is also how you make pigeons go away.


I've heard a different method is common.

Sybarite: By the time I knocked on their door to ask permission to retrieve it they'd discovered the drone and were holding it captive under a pot in the kitchen.

That's funny.


The neighbor who held the drone captive is a pal of mine. He posted the discovery of it on his Facebutt account so we could all contemplate why it wound up in his yard. He backed the indiegogo fundraiser for Droneshield and gave the dude his drone back after he explained himself.

elguerodiablo: Why stalk people when the internet lets you view the cams nubile womens gladly put in their own bedrooms and then do awesome naked things in front of?


I think it has something to do with a feeling of power or control, or possibly the thrill of doing something "naughty", or the risk of getting caught.  Or maybe it has to do with spying on your next-door neighbor while she's taking a bath, and then seeing her walking around the neighborhood fully clothed later--- that knowledge that she doesn't know you've seen her naked --- having a secret.  I don't know.  I don't really get voyeurism, frankly, but it seems to be a very powerful force for a lot of people.

There has to be SOME reason why horny guys don't just look at free porn on the Internet.

toraque: What's with all this ITG talk in here?  There are simpler solutions to this mess.

If anyone peeps in my windows with a spy drone, they're going to see a pasty white nerd doing such horrifying things with oatmeal, lube, animal crackers and a life sized cardboard cutout of George C. Scott that they'll never want to look in anyone's windows again.


We just call that "Thursday" in these parts.

I like the idea of spraying the drone thing with a water hose, but why not find the operator and spray them? I think it would be hilarious watching them try to shield their remote control device from the water while they try to figure out how to fly their drone without crashing it despite the distraction of my spraying water in their face.
Of course, if you're the intimidating type, just tell them to either crash their drone into the ground immediately or face an ass kicking. If they don't crash it on purpose, it'll crash when they can't fly it because they're being pummeled.

/is assault with water a charge?
//violence is not the answer

That actually is a CSB.
