Drone strikes, what can happen?!! Mentour Explains


Darcer's Tech

I am a (certified) commercial drone operator in the UK and would like to say a few things. #1: It's really sad that just because a couple of people lack common sense the entire industry will become even more limited / will require more paperwork. #2: I think the 50m limit is too far away for the lightest weight category of drones. For those, I would do 30m minimum and 15m for landing. #3: I do not mind taking the time and paying to get a license, but it is ridiculous how much the rules differ country to country and you need different certificates for each. #4: I hope U-Space will come soon and will actually reduce the complexity of flight prep. and increase safety at the same time because the amount of paperwork which needs to be officially done even before a mission which is just a couple of minutes long is ridiculous.

I'd like to see drones emit a radio frequency. If someone unknowingly flies in a restricted area near the airport, it can be detected, and also devise the drives to be remotely shut down. If nothing else radar and lasers to blast them could work. Great video, btw.

Unfortunately there is a huge amount of misinformation on drones particularly from the pilot representative bodies. Let's just lay out a few facts: - The pilot records that contain the drone "incidents" are the same records we used to get most of our UFO sightings. - National airports have been closed in the UK due to plastic bags identified as drones - "Investigations" by pilot bodies often consist merely of interviews and damage inspection. - The research you mentioned has been widely derided as not representative of real situations - The risk of drone strike is a fraction of the typical bird strike risk. - Several widely reported incidents used as a demonstration of risk have turned out to be false positives. - registration will do nothing to keep drones out of airport approach/takeoff zones The Airline pilots membership organisations are sadly waging a war against a legitimate form of recreation and seem to be seeking to solve issues that arguably don't exist with restrictions on private citizens that would have a questionable benefit. Pilots and the public would be far better served if the effort concerned was redirected at threat identification to prevent the recent closure of heathrow due to a plastic bag and, one suspects, most of the closure at gatwick. This ridiculous policy is failing to solve the issue and as a result causing delays to passengers and risks to pilots.

Are you aware that the University of Dayton study has been shown to be "junk science"? University of Dayton is currently facing a potential lawsuit, as the test was designed with the intent of producing as much damage as possible. In reality, launching a drone out of a cannon at a static wing does not in any way simulate real life, including the pressure wave in front of a wing. The Dayton study seems to be the primary evidence for many of the conclusions you have drawn. Please retract or remake this video to stay consistent with your otherwise trustworthy content.

Hello Mentour Pilot, I have enjoyed your videos for the most part so far. However I would like to point out one flaring annoyance I have with them and that is the confirmation endings to your sentences, uses like "okay?", "Alright?" etc. This might just be a cultural thing, but in these parts in is considered rather rude, as if you are talking down to someone straight up dumb. I have tried to overlook it, but as it keeps ticking me, so I thought it was only right to inform you of this, as it might be turning more people away than just me. If you don't want to attempt to change the speech pattern I wouldn't hold it against you and I honestly think you are a good person and meant nothing by it. I think this latter part goes without saying, but seeing how some internet users starts attacking other for sharing critics despite them being meant in good faith

The best solution I ever read about for this kind of problem is a "search and destroy drone". i.e. fight drones with drones. It would work by flying over the illegal drone, then dropping a net on top of it, the net being attached to some sort of parachute, in order not to kill humans below. The idea being that registration only protects you from commercial drones, and not the ones you can build out of an arduino board, 2 tree branches, 4 motors & blades, a cellphone battery and open-source software.

Can we really cite Gatwick? Shutdown for 3 days and not one photo or video of the alleged drone. Then they arrest a completely innocent couple who were later released with mo charges. Finally, the police said that there may never have been a drone. A few days later a suspected drone citing was found to be the warning lights from a crane. At this point when a drone sighting is reported, it should be regarded as a UFO until confirmed. I'm all about keeping drones and manned aircraft safely separated and there are idiots getting way to close to manned aircraft. But unfounded reports of drone sightings is getting out of control.

Your first example on drone strike..where is the proof? Your 2nd example at 5:15, big hole but no blod..no evidence of drone either, should be parts found with that big hole, or did it penetrate deep inside and exit in the back? im pretty sure its the brain to some person making drone accusations that made the big hole, that would answer why there is no evidence found. At 8:55 you say a drone will impact an aircraft like a bullet, thats wierd. I thought bullets did more damage, maybe im wrong..i dont have any proof... At 9:30 we see drone is modified already before impact, and at what speed did it hit the wing? 238mph to a small airplane wing, isnt that a little fast for a small plane? A Mooney m20, as used in test, at maximum speed hitting a drone, is that realistic? Do they test for bird strike on B737 at 635mph? And its first time i see a cylindrical pink bird like shown at 10:20 🤣. The questions i ask myself after i watched this video, are you payed to say this, you plan on political career ?? I think they should test planes for meteorite impact too, there is a big risk and my imagination runs wild to what can happen. This make me a bit angry, all these drone accusations but no proof. As a pilot i hope you are a lot more concerned of bird strike than drone strike when you fly. I look forward to your comment on this.

Nice! Pretty sure with the 1/2 ton of aluminum on the leading edge of a 737 wing would shred a plastic drone belch and ask for another. The Mooney M20 (the wing video) tops out at 200 so this was all done mythbuster style to generate hysteria in the uneducated public. Judging by most of the comments it worked.

Drones are a menace and invade personal privacy. All drones should be registered and all drone pilots licensed as per all other operators of air vehicles. The licensing qualification should include not just the rules of the air but regulation regarding use of video images without consent of all participants in the videos/photos. Another option is a legal requirment for all drones to have a transponder.

Howdy, I have a "drone" based channel, and someone asked me to take a look at this video from one I made about the Gatwick incident... or debacle as I call it. A few points to make - firstly, we - and I think that's the general population of earth as well as model aircraft fliers - don't want to see any model being flown close to a full sized aircraft, as in you initial clip. So the good news about one of the laws governing how close you can fly to an aerodrome has recently been updated in the UK as the glide slope on an approach could put a commercial jet under 400ft 1km out - that extends to a 5km radius with further extensions from the runways themselves. Yay - a rule that enhances safety, I can get behind that. However, what I can't get behind are rules that won't do anything to enhance safety. Let's take the Gatwick incident, of which I've yet to see any proof that "rogue" drones were there. If people had set out to cause deliberate chaos and mayhem to the airport, they are clearly criminals and one thing criminals don't do is follow the rules about registering things. In the same way that an armed robber doesn't buy his gun legally and also uses a stolen vehicle as a getaway car. So the proposed Drone register can only be seen as a way of placating a worried public who have been whipped up into hysteria by the media and want something done. So the government come up with a register, the public say "yay", but in reality it's meaningless.... in fact it's far worse that that, because should a drone incident occur and the police have no leads, they'll start knocking on the houses of innocent drone owners that are being completely lawful and have all manor of accusations thrown at them. One thing it may do is stop what I call the "accidental idiot" they guys that buys a drone, thinks they can be flown without any worry and does silly things. The thought of registration and an online test may put him off - but no an actual targetted "attack" Also, although that crash footage is very alarming - it does essentially show a drone crashing into a wing of something going beyond it's max speed. I'm not suggesting a drone will just harmlessly bounce off a commercial jet, but it would be useful to actually conduct some proper tests on a passenger jet and see what happens under different circumstances. Perhaps data from this could be useful in something to mitigate such a strike.

As I've been saying for years. Everyone needs to have a licence, same as a shotgun or firearm licence. Everything will be owned by yourself with a cereal number attached and if anything happens your responsible. In England it's classed as a tarrorist attack if a drone or anything flying hits an aircraft. One of the biggest problems with drones or anything that flies is that they use Li-Po or Lithium batteries. If they get bent punctured they burst into flames! ⚡️🔥 Which will make the entire wing explode.

Total sh1t (sorry). Gatwick was a hoax. The plane wing in the video was a Mooney M20 that can't go 238MPH. A 737 wing with the slats on the leading edge is almost bullet proof. Hail is much more of a factor when going 450 KTS through a thunderstorm. On your firearms: It is perfectly legal to build/own/use a firearm you assemble with no serial number. And yet we zero crimes committed with "ghost guns". This is all hysteria.

Lipo hitting/ penetrating a wing, what could possibly go wrong! I think flying drones should use a similar model to scuba diving. Flippers, snorkel etc, are readily available, but you can't rent/ buy a regulator & tank unless you can prove you're qualified. Plus, with supervised dives, they will limit how deep a beginner can go, if at all. Hopefully, it will be possible for drone pilots to rent air space, not abiding by the rules equals fines & penalties. Maybe we'll get fighter drones to ensure drone pilots don't stick to the rules. Although I think that's how Skynet started.🤔

Wouldn’t the air flow impede a frontal hit with the wing, and if not, the battery of the drone could ignite as well inside the wing. But I don’t think that the test was completely accurate. I personally think it is a good idea to have clear rules about drones, but we need to get all the facts right first, and not star paranoia against a great tool.

My two cents: I like the TCAS idea. Let's add a few more rules. If the drone detects an aircraft within a "resolution advisory" range, it shuts off and falls to the ground. Same if you violate the geofence. Mandatory geofence, no drones may be operated without geofence or the TCAS system. There must be no way to disable these systems. Maybe even make them black-boxes that physically cut battery power in an "out of bounds" situation. Mandatory registration and flight courses. Lower flight ceiling, as some commenters noted aircraft CAN fly below 500ft. Drone ceiling of 200ft, enforced by geofence system. Wider range from airports where drones can't fly. Get rid of exemptions for the rules.

I remember a drone incident back here in Malaysia where the operator flew above the fencing behind the runway threshold. He was trying to film the landing of an AirAsia X A330 landing and posted it on his Instagram. He got so much scrutiny to the point that there were death threats and he locked himself in his house out of fear. Strict law enforcement on drones need to be taken.

in my country Botswana .... All drones must be registered with the CAAB. (aviation authority) Drone pilots must maintain a direct visual line of sight with their drone while flying. Drones may be flown up to 400 feet above ground level, and no farther than 500 meters (1,640 feet) from the drone pilot. Drone pilots may not fly more than one drone at the same time. Drone pilots must be 18 years of age or older. Drones may not be flow within 3 kilometers (2 miles) of any airport or airfield. Drones must give the right away to manned aircraft. Drones may not be flown at night. (there are also restricted areas of operation) but like you said.. enforcement is a challenge!

I'm not so sure that the rules will end up requiring a certificate just to purchase a drone, ultimately there will probably be a licencing requirement in order to legally operate a drone. In that regard it would be more in line with the existing rules for other motorised craft like motorcycles, cars, aircraft and even many types of powered watercraft. At least here in the UK and I think in most countries you can legally purchase and own any one of those craft without a licence however you cannot operate such craft on public land, air or waterways without a licence. Given that drones would be very similar to the other vehicles in that they have many legitimate uses and would pose an even lower risk of harm were they to be operated only by properly trained users I would expect similar treatment in law. In general governments only go so far as to criminalise the mere purchase and possession of goods where they are considered to pose such an extreme risk of harm if handled or stored improperly that it outweighs the benefits. Generally this is pretty much exclusively restricted to things like weapons, explosives and toxic/radioactive substances that are inherently high risk by nature and require training in the proper safety and security precautions necessary to mitigate the high risks involved in even handling or storing them let alone attempting to use them. Drones do not really fit into the latter sort of category and even if they did the fact is that regulating the sale of drones would be even more ineffective than it is for other powered vehicles. The fact is that a basic drone can be assembled from 6 basic components all of which are completely ubiquitous multi purpose items. Not only are these items that can be acquired at any electronics dealer but they are so ubiquitous in commercial devices from toys to appliances that they can be salvaged from practically any old bits of electronic junk. After all your basic drone core components are a microcontroller, communication module, electric motors, fans and a battery attached to a rigid but lightweight frame. These are not components that could be restricted in any remotely effective way even if you wanted to I could probably knock up a basic drone from a broken computer, a smartphone and a few bits of balsa wood if I set my mind to it. Course the smartphone also would bring with it a whole bunch of the optional components that would make it even more functional too (GPS, 3-axis gyro, 3-axis accelerometer etc) these are not required though as it is possible to operate one manually by remote control though it would take some practice and effort to get it right. I do agree with you on everything else and I do think that there certainly will be regulations coming if not in light of the incidents that have already happened there will certainly be action when the incidents inevitably mount up. Honestly I just hope that the regulators do look into the issue and impose some sane regulations that make the drone situation safer without crippling their potential before it gets to the point that there are bodies on the ground. Sadly in the past it has sometimes required lives to be lost before regulations were put into place or at least regulations with any teeth behind them to ensure timely compliance. As if it wasn't bad enough that delaying too long will result in people getting hurt I also fear that the resulting political pressure to rush action in that event is likely to lead to poorly thought out regulation that is either ineffective or overly cripples legitimate uses of drones as a result of knee jerk regulation which is almost always bad.

In short it's the ATC whose job is to make sure those all stay in right places and at safe distances from each others in the first place. That's why it's important for pilots to tell ATC about deviations from (accepted) plan, like after that engine failure which forces starting descend to lower altitude.

Thanks for the informative video, was very curious to hear your take on it! I've never really operated a drone, so not sure how feasible this is, but some immediate thoughts that come to mind that could be regulated on the manufacturers technical side would be: - Some sort of line-of-sight sensor, that makes sure the drone pilot has a visual (obviously needing some short leniency if you pass behind a tree or lamp post etc.) And it could ensure the drone doesn't leave the maximum distance. - A kind of IFF tag for drones over a certain size (don't think the palm sized ones would be very useful even in slight wind). Also as a completely not-serious suggestion for Gatwick situations: Could be an opportunity for target practice for the local law enforcement and hunting clubs. ;)

1) The UK Air Navigation order does not impose any explicit distance limitation from the pilot (you quote 500m) on drones. The only distance limitation is that LOS has to be maintained. 2) You state that there is a height limitation of 400', however there are two classes of exemption for this (Model Associations and FPV) which permit flight to 1000'. Not sure you have done your research here.

As a safe sane and responsible dji P3p pilot, I protest more regulations. worldwide there are thousands of jails and prisons, but that does not stop crime. I never want to see a drone caused accident of any kind. but laws have never stopped reasonable rational people. but thanks for the video, and happy new year.

Hey Mentour! I've binged most of your videos, but something really annoys me. Whenever you have a sponsor like Brilliant, you always say 'the 500 first of you...' and I really think it should say 'the first 500 of you...' I'm sorry, I got adhd and it triggers me. Other than that, awesome videos! :D

Rules and regulations are great -- for the law abiding. However, just like with gun control, the criminals have a broad view of what law abiding means. Wouldn't it be more productive for aviation, particularly commercial, to develop some kind of electronic pulse device in the aircraft (nose area or somewhere in the wings) that would pulse out a radio frequency to knock out drones in the flight path up to, say, 3 thousand feet?

Should there be rules & regulations on drones in the vicinity of airports? Yes. The rules however should be based on rules that are already in place and common sense. The main priority should be safety of planes. Should there be an understanding of flight rules by those operating drones, yes. Overall the rules are already there but weren't implemented on drones, which they should. Airspace Class, aircraft separation, etc. should be known before flying a drone near an airport.

Airports also spend a lot of time and effort to try and counter bird strikes at airports. Airports use many tricks to scare various breeds of birds away from airports. Drones are not as easily countered.

Hi Mentour Pilot, Interesting channel. Maybe you have covered it already but why do big airplanes (liners, cargo) have rounded fronts (body and wings). You would expect that pointing fronts have less drag. Do you know the reason?

Great video. In Ontario it’s 7 km’s away from any airports which is decent and roughly 90 meters away from buildings at any given time.

Petter, Happy New Year to you. Your pup is not at all bothered while you are doing your video. How can these drone nuts be stopped? I saw a recent video of an airman’s windscreen being struck by a large bird (flexible and not rigid like a drone) and the damage was bad enough to bring down the GA plane. Not a good thing. Can aircraft and drones find a workaround to coexisting in the same place? I don’t foresee that happening. This is the same scenario as lasers be pointed directly at aircraft. These people have zero brain matter in their skulls and they are happy to proceed with their dire plans to fly near an aircraft.

That was a good explanation and example of the difference between a drone and bird strike. “...why canon balls are not made out of chicken” 🤣👍🏽 I admit earlier I thought they would be similar so ‘why the great fuss?’. Imagine if drones flown in airport airspace were treated as ‘attempted murder’... wow.

Seriously biased. How about you mention the near misses CAUSED by full sized aviation at or below 500' with drones! Not to mention near misses and COLLISIONS between full sized aviation. Yes Drones are a potential additional risk to aviation but this is no more than a clickbait story to gain views. For reference the Mexican issue was not a drone it was pressure related.

I heard it was a Gatwick system failure, so they blamed it on a drone sighting to distract everyone. That way they avoid the outrage and legal claims.

When I was a teen, in 1990-92 or so the local Radio Controlled Aircraft's club flying field was at the North end of the runway at a small municipal airport in Southern Illinois. About 200 feet off to the NE end of the runway. The airport's manager ( boss ) was a club member, had a small hobby shop there. I guess he kept an eye on us. I got yelled at a few times for flying over the boundary lines . Any time real traffic was spotted an aural warning was given and we would restrict our planes 'airspace' to the East of the runway. The pilots always waved and we never had any incident involving a real aircraft carrying a person. We had a mowed runway, but were allowed to use the T turn around at the North end of the concrete/tarmac runway as long as there was no visible traffic. Many hours of standing on or near, landing and taking off from the actual runway of a low traffic airport flying RC I recall some of the first airshows that were held there, if traffic needed to come in, we would just yield. This is Metropolis Municipal Airport, I don't think RC airshows are allowed there anymore. Eventually we were forced to move because someone put an RC plane through the roof of a house. Thought that's what AMA insurance was for? Good times

As an RC pilot (mostly fixed wing) here in the US, I understand the need for some more regulation. But as many people have said, the truly malicious or foolish drone user will NOT be deterred by regulations. The key to controlling this maybe be real-time detection. A system of multiple, directing indicating receivers, placed around an airport, should be able to locate operator transmitters and the transmitters used for video from drones. A nearby drone, coupled with a nearby transmitter, could trigger a search to catch the person "in the act". Likewise the drone path might be trackable. A specialized radar would also help. The whole point would be to apprehend real culprits and then utilize the regulations to punish THEM.

I think that there should be something to identify the drones owner like a call sign or a license plate. This could be like a transmitter so Incase it is flown dangerously, the police can go to the operators house.

I think every commercial drone should have position lights, so that pilots will have an easier time spotting them, especially at night.

Can you have a system that "kills" all the unathorized drones in the critical area around the airport? That shut them down if they come to close to controlled airspace around a airport? Johan.
