Re: drone takes drone

take a £100 FPV drone and one half decent FPV pilot and ram the damn thing

There's certainly a case for ramming the thing out the air if you're not going to shoot it. Using another drone is probably not ideal as they're all pretty slow, and a "drone pursuit" could be as fast and effective as a zimmer frame race. But a conventional R/C "model" aircraft with a forward looking camera should have the capability, speed and substance to wack any non-military drone out of the air, with a starting price tag of about £300 for something halfway decent.
