Drones. They're kind of like that pesky little sibling. 

Cool to boss them around and push their buttons. Not cool when they invade your personal space.

Shanghai gets it, which is why last weekend at the annual F1 Grand Prix they put an anti-drone system to the test.

According to police, the anti-drone system called Airborne detected a drone entering the International circuit around 1pm on April 1 (an hour prior to the race start).

After it was reported, police 'used the system's electromagnetic interference function', issuing the drone to land within just a minute!

And thus proving that, the force is strong within the game of drones.
