What the heck do you mean by that; do you discount the speed of the main rotor blades, the tail rotor blades in a machine 'slow moving' between pick up and drop at anything from 90-120 knots? Tail rotor blade vs illegal drone is unlikely to end well for either machine.

When you're in a hole, best to stop digging.
