I wouldn't take this too seriously.  This same (I believe) company had "Zombie loads" when all the zombie movies were popular.

I read down in the comments and some guy said:  "No one needs a shotgun to bring down a drone.  DJI software upgrades do it much more effectively".  LOL LOL LOL.

I think at the point that someone is shooting at a quad, that it's fair play to return the gesture and fly directly at them.  One of the 250 racers that reach 100 mph would make it sporting.

I can't imagine the damage getting hit with 250 racer would do, but I would hope that it never gets to this point.

I'm getting a Walkera 250 Runner today.  We should start pairing up and using these 250 as wingmen.  Shoot at a P3 and get strafed with a racer as payback.

I saw a youtube video where a person with a racer that was clocked at over 116 mph, did a crash and burn. He hit the ground at about 15 degrees, just at the bottom of the arch they use for the speed run. There was nothing left to salvage.

Check this one out.   

Too bad that YOU would get charged with assault and possibly attempted murder for the misuse.

It's a good dream, but that's as far as it goes.

Can you explain why you consider US as the greatest nation on earth ? (I'm not speaking about the fact that US has the most prestigious universities, the fact that Neil Amstrong walked on the Moon (thanks to a German), the fact that the most incredible ever build airplane, the SR-71, was born in the US and things like that).
You'll be surprised (I'm not) but do you know that top ranked nations in the QLI (Quality of Life Index) are mainly Nordic and some other European countries ? Aren't these "great" countries ?
Anyway, in the US you have the right to fly almost everywhere while in my little country it is and will stay forbidden
You know Ray, a lot of countries all around the planet have their strengths and weaknesses.

i dont want to make this a political thread, it is just my opinion, and i am not a born american citizen. and i didnt say greatest nation on earth as far as the quality of life goes, for that i would rather live in a country with less hussle and busell, less importance on money and more importance on being happy and a good human being!!
and i would love to visit the nordic countries as i find them beautiful.
have a nice day
