Make your own drone catcher

I almost fell over watching this one.  Pretty neat idea (thought range isn’t the greatest).  Guess if you need to capture some drones without killing them, this would do it. https://www.instructables.com/id/Homemade-Drone-Catcher/

I forsee folks getting free parking in the future

The author figured out how to sniff some of the garage gates and get them to trip using an 433 MHz OOK module and an arduino.  I see a future here where folks use this to bypass parking garage gates. … Continue reading
