Russian FPV Drone Crash Caused by Ukrainian Electronic Countermeasures

Intercepted footage from a Russian FPV drone shows the perspective of a drone pilot losing control his weapon system because of Ukrainian electronic countermeasures.


I'm not expert on electronic countermeasures, but apparently this footage shows what it looks like when control signals to the drone are jammed. According to the source, the countermeasure was specifically targeting the drone's serial digital protocols for pitch and yaw, making it impossible for the operator to effectively control the device.


Even still, it appears as if the drone pilot is fighting against those and attempting to recover the drone. Fortunately for whatever the target was, the pilot fails in that endeavor and the drone crashes to the Earth while the countermeasures are still effective.
