    Kyle and iFixit are fantastic, and this is a great breakdown of a subtle hardware issue.

    I wonder if there’s a reasonable adversarial model for MEMS gyros in helium-rich environments? Drones which use MEMS gyros can be knocked out of the air with sound waves at the gyro’s resonant frequency (cite: https://www.usenix.org/system/files/conference/usenixsecurity15/sec15-paper-son-updated.pdf), so a hose of liquid helium which rapidly expands to gas should also be able to take those drones down if it can get them to fly through a cloud of it for long enough.

      Suggest debugging and hardware, since this is about sorting out a hardware issue.
