Re: Consequences

The results of a BASH (Bird Aircraft Strike Hazard) with commercial flights is well known. The thing is that birds are pretty much all of a certain density with known momentum but a drone might add some variables that weren't considered since the blades are already moving at high speed and the motor windings are considerably more dense than any part of a bird. It would be an interesting experiment to take a aged jet engine and feed it drone.
