So if the skid enters an area of lens coverage like that it could disappear for a few frames until it moves out again as it would if something entered the frame in the area of the camera support then?

We could if it was always a bad thing. With mid-air after mid-air from "See and Avoid" and fatality after fatality one might conclude that multi-rotor drones aren't ever a bad thing in the grand scheme, having been involved in zero fatalities in 50+ years of hobby use. So far there has been one incident, between a military helicopter and a drone that resulted in minor (recognizably costly) damage to the helicopter, six years ago. This with literally tens of millions of multi-rotor drones being sold in the US.

The hobby side has begged the FAA to require ADS-B Out on all manned aircraft, including powered parafoils, but the FAA has refused, in spite of paying aircraft owners a rebate on such systems. The system the FAA has pushed onto drone operators is insufficient to alert manned aircraft operators. Such is regulation.
