    Meh. You'll pay ridiculous money for a platform no where near as advanced as the likes of a DJI or equivalent mainstream commercial vendor. The sensor (camera) etc is where the money should be going to

    Do they mention any jamming resistance, encryption or anything in the spec?

    Basic IT hygiene will cover encryption/secure transmission

    No defence against jamming. All transmitters can be jammed.

    Best defence is active offense - Directional Finding EW coupled with a "kinetic" response to a confirmed jamming source

    All I would say is (imo) it largely depends on your adversary - wideband adaptive freq hopping will be a lot trickier for small groups to counter than, than say something locked to 2.4GHz.

    I'm just trying to justify the costs - if they're going to use a COTS civilian spec radio, my mind would boggle - but if they're using something labelled Harris, well it would make the sums balance up a bit...

    No argument with the best way to deal with a confirmed jamming source
