I have just found this link and it represents what we used to call, in high school, "Divertimento innocuo per bambini scemi" (= innocuous play for idiotic children). This is more silly than innocuous, though. The only contrusctive result was the behaviour of the li-po battery pack, which survived because of its insulation.

"The team’s recommendation? Keep drones grounded during lightning storms if you don’t want a few thousand dollars worth of equipment to go up in one zap."

And it took at least a Masters degree to come up with this? I would have thought that would be common sense....

I believe the real point here is to realise that millions of dollars of public money are used to build top equipment which CAN BE USED BY ABSOLUTE MORONS TO PROVE NOTHING!!! This is completely ridiculous. It reminds me of the famous Lapalisse, the "philosopher" who was emphasising the obvious at all times.
