(Newser) – We now know what would happen if a drone traveled back in time to the Middle Ages. A talented knight—more precisely, a talented medieval reenactor—at Russia's Rusborg festival managed to down a drone with a throw of his spear. The drone was recording the event from about 20 feet in the air when the man emerged from a crowd, took aim, and let fly, sending the drone careening to the ground, per Inverse. Its operators, photographers from Lipetsk, say the drone had to be sent to Moscow for repairs, reports the Guardian. Luckily its footage of sword fights and half-naked rugby games was unharmed.
