Okay, hear me out, i'm serving to a good friend together with his novel, and the premise is that a man must disable a drone utilizing no matter he can discover in a truck. The present concept is that he rips a magnet out of a speaker, and units it on prime of the drone for five minutes. Then once they take the drone out to fly it, it goes up after which loses management and crashes.

I see two issues incorrect with this, however please right me if I'm misinformed:

1) if it labored, the drone wouldn't take off within the first place.

2) contemplating that individuals are making an attempt to connect magnets to drones now, I don't assume 5 minutes of contact would disable something. Additionally, that is purported to be a really excessive tech drone, like cutting-edge army gear.

Anybody have any concepts on the right way to (theoretically) stealthily sabotage a drone like that, with out many instruments out there? The perfect concept I can provide you with is an affordable GPS jammer or an interference app that he already had put in on his telephone for no matter cause. Lol.
