We're not entirely sure who the mad geniuses behind this little experiment are, but kudos to them. It really is fun to watch a quadrotor drone in a Faraday cage fly through the air and get zapped by Tesla coils like it just angered Zeus. Who would've thought?
The creators actually have a whole YouTube channel devoted to this type of thing, including this one, of a person getting zapped.
Cool. You can see how the electric field concentrates around the corners of the cage. This is why lightning rods tend to be pointy.
If the polarity of a charge is equality spread about, the difference of polarity is nullified and its harmful effects as well for the flying drone inside the cage.
Of course, this drone might run on electricity. I wonder what could happen if it was ignitable fuel drone. Perhaps it may BLOW UP?
