Recently, Russian cities are increasingly protesting against the ruining governments of Putin and the company. Young people are fed up with poverty and do not want to allow permanent surveillance and control of the Internet.
During one of the protests that took place in the Russian capital, the police carried out a spectacular takeover of the Mavic 2 Pro drone from DJI. The whole situation looked quite comical and reminiscent of scenes from a sci-fi movie, because the police used a futuristic-looking weapon to take over the drone.
One of the policemen, with the help of this invention, which is a combination of a rifle and a television antenna, was to drown out radio signals at 2.4 and 5 Ghz frequencies transmitted between the drone and the controller and, thus, take control of the machine. The action went perfectly. A second policeman picked up a drone worth over PLN 5,000 directly in front of hundreds of protesters streaming audit.
Experts estimated, however, that it was a well-organized bill. It was intended to intimidate protesters not to use drones to record events from the air. To drown out the frequencies at which drones communicate with controllers, they use much less spectacular devices that certainly would not arouse such interest in the media and not inscribed in the Kremlin’s beautiful propaganda actions.
