and do they understand jamming a signal during flight could lead to impact with possibly persons and possessions below should the unit free fall without the operator control? opens a whole new bag of worms don't it?

I got a great idea!!!!!
No one else has thought of it yet either I bet.

Just TURN OFF GPS TO THE PUBLIC!!!!!!!!!

Then these "Drones" AKA "multi rotors" wont be able to position hold, take off on their own, and fly waypoints.
This would cause lots of the people to crash on their first few flights and would drive them out of the Hobby.
Then we will be left with the responsible pilots that for the last 20 years were causing relatively few problems compared to the drones now.

The morons that run the FAA and the military could handle this easily if they could only buy a clue. They've been clueless from the start.Delayed Response Operator Not Engaged

FCC vs Military Jamming?
Bad road to travel. The FCC is not going to like this idea of radio jamming because it can cause other problems for people using the radio spectrum for legit purposes. It is certainly illegal for citizens to jam frequencies and may not work with frequency jumping transmitters and receivers.

Not every multi-rotor has a return to home(launch) function embedded. Not all Multis have GPS capability. Shooting them down has risks too. All that lead is not stopped by the aircraft... tracers might end up lighting up that church a half mile away.

So lets say that they use a laser to drop the multi... what happens if it happens to drop on a soccer mom's van driving her children to see Santa and the Lipo batteries set everything on fire? I can see the ambulance chasers lining up and frothing at the mouth for this one.

Pretty soon it is going to be illegal to fly one anywhere... problem solved.

that's right, my reply was uninformed. I re-read the article and yes it was a command to return home functionality they were seeking to utilize.

What's seriously interesting throughout all the hysterics involved in this faa regulations spotlight is that there is NOT ONE RECORDED COLLISION WITH FULL SIZE AIRCRAFT, with the reported 1000 or so alleged near misses, not a one.

I think a better solution to nuisance breaches of airspace over sensitive installations would be to over ride the "drone" operator control, take over control and command the craft to land inside the "no drone zone" thereby confiscating the drone in question and let the perps ask for it back after showing id. The site managers would get a copy of the vid or choose to remove the media storage completely if the site was sensitive to secrecy,,,,,,,,,if you want a positive angle on "geo fencing".

I think that is a very good idea too and should not be that difficult to implement. Any existing GPS device will need to update a firmware that accepts a new passcode in order to continue on on using the GPS but such firmware update and/or passcode acceptance will not be available for drones.

There isn't enough space on this page to describe how bad an idea that would be.

Actually I think it is a good idea depending on how you do it. I've been saying since this conversation started that the aerial appliance manufacturers have to take a more significant role in this issue. The way they do that is by locking out the drone from flying until they know who owns it using stop and release codes. To take that a step further, if you look at the cause of our problems in the first place it is stabilization, FPV and the ability to fly long distances and altitudes from the operator. Stabilization and GPS could be lumped into the same category if you wanted although they can also be separated out.

Manufacturers could easily lock the models to a certain radius and altitude if GPS is enabled.

Many moons ago those that controlled the GPS satellites used to transmit an error in the co-ordinates only known to themselves.

I don't know what was involved but the same could probably be done again. Only thing is it would screw up everyone's in car and whatever sat nav systems.
