Tell us about yourself!
On my first flight I had my drone stuck about 75 feet up in a tree with minimal battery power. I tried to get it to lift itself straight up, which it couldn't do. Then on a whim I pushed the stick all the way to the right. The props on the left gave a good push, flipping the drone to the right and over the branch. It tumbled out of the tree. It did bounce a little, but it lived to fly again.
Recently someone shot down a drone that he thought was invading his privacy. He got fined heavily for shooting a gun in a residential area. In addition he had to replace the destroyed drone and then face separate charges from the FAA. The FAA added additional fines, as shooting down a drone is a Federal Crime, and is awaiting sentencing for jail time in a Federal prison. So not worth it.
Trying to remove this comment because the jail time information I read may not be entirely accurate.
Putting aside the legal end of things, I'd say it's a seriously brilliant Instructable! Great work!
Under FAA regulations drones under 250g (0.55lbs) don't even need to be registered. As far as drones invading your privacy, as long as the drone isn't right up against your window, there is no privacy violation. Several people have been fined heavily for shooting down a drone flying over their property, as well as having to purchase a new drone to replace the downed drone. The space over your home is NOT yours. The FAA regulates all air space above the ground. It can get way, way expensive to shoot down a drone..

I have all sorts of fire starters for camping. I was going to buy and electric lighter but this circuit would serve the same purpose, with additional functionality.
I have seen something very similar (electrically the same) listed for science purposes. I'm thinking of making this for lighting camp fires. Great instructable!
