Re: Tinsel might do the job or a net
Tinsel, or rather long strips of kitchen foil, is a great way to shut down an electricity sub-station. Not a great way to take down a drone.
Over a decade ago police started using drones to buzz open air activist meetings and there was a lot of discussion on how to bring them down, similar to the comments here. Lots of suggestions of shooting at them, which I had to point out was dangerous - what goes up comes down.
Helium party balloons used as barrage balloons - with tennis nets strung between them. Helium is expensive.
My solution was our own drone with a signal jammer that blocked all but our modified signal.
