Are you worried about the inevitable drone invasion? Have you been waiting for a defense system that you can trust? Look no further. This video shows just how effective the system is — no smoke and mirrors. Just results.
Forget RF jamming or WiFi hacking. If those devices work at all, they’re probably only good for stopping consumer devices. If you want to be sure that a drone is taken down, you’ll need a pumpkin cannon.
Wait what? Our hero was filming his massive pumpkin cannon, shooting pumpkins at around 200mph. So far, just another normal October afternoon. But then, his daughter recommended getting a nice shot of video from over the woods:
“It would be cool to get video from the woods!”
It sounded so easy. Simply fly the quadcopter up above the trees and shoot the pumpkin right by it for dramatic effect. And that was the beginning of the end. He doesn’t blame her though. It was a good idea in theory…
Total damage is estimated at about $500. Three out of four props still worked, the other one needed resoldering and a new shell. The GoPro gimbal was pooched and so was the landing gear. But thankfully the GoPro was fine.
