Sometimes you just need some good old-fashioned weaponry to take down modern-day technology.

A drone pilot was filming a historical reenactment at a Russian festival when a participant threw a spear at the device, according to Digital Trends.

Reports say that participants were upset that drones were recording the reenactments.

The man who threw the spear later apologized and offered to pay for the damaged drone.
