Re: Where are the Drone Jammers then?
The odds of lighting up a cockpit by accident are very, very small for most of the UK, especially if aiming for a drone which happens to be casting its beady eye on you.
You don't act safely by assuming a risk does NOT exist (which is apparently the approach of most drone operators), you assume risk until you can prove it does not exist, has a very low likelihood or you have found a way to mitigate it. IR lasers, for instance, won't harm visual acuity for pilots so they're a valid mitigation.
I would naturally research how and where I can down a drone with low risk and with as much plausible deniability as I can muster - maybe I ought to find a way to better aim clay pigeons :)
