What about a 22 or a pellet gun?

Toads will happily survive most air rifles.

As a kid we'd put out a bowl of Pal then sit up all night picking them off as they came in. One normal pellet gun and one big bastard you could load with bb's or rocks or bolts or whatever. It was amazing how many could suck their guts back in and stagger away before morning.

It's what plants crave.

Just don't like the idea of lead pellets everywhere. And a .22 would be overkill.

paintball guns use c02 to rapidfire
not easily doable with a 22 or pellet

The BB and .17 caliber pistols use CO2 cartriges.

that's what shotguns are for. :smug:
I'd bet a paintball gun would work. You're less likely to get in trouble for firing one around the neighborhood (and they're pretty quiet), but it would probably still do some damage to a drone, especially if you store the balls in the freezer. :D

Should read the whole thread first. :p  But freezing paintballs makes them quite a bit more painful.

Well yes, I can see that frozen balls would be very painful.

its been warm enough to fly without freezing any balls

kit took some tweaking, but flies good now
getting some vibrations/resinating at near full throttle, maybe due to unbalanced propellers
prop balancer is on the way

5040 props give much better lift and speed
