    Check six — don’t get bounced by bogeys coming out of the sun.

    (The coolest thing I maybe ever did in a sailplane was sneak up on an eagle in flight. He glanced over his wing, did a double-take, then pulled in his wings and dove.)

    [quote<]Lockheed Martin's laser weapon takes down 5 drones in live-fire demonstration @ New Atlas[/quote<] I wish they stated how long the laser was hitting the targets before critical damage occurred. Was it 2 seconds or 10 minutes? I think that would make a big difference between its effectiveness.

      Judging from the video, it was significantly more than 2 seconds — and it looks like the drones are fiberglass, which has a lower melting point than aluminum. It’s a long way from disabling an aircraft that is actively trying to avoid getting hit.

      That said, if you’re worried about, say, [url=<]Bad Guys flying drones over your position[/url<] for recce or to [url=<]deliver an IED[/url<], it might do the job.
