    “Drones like the DJI Phantom and the DJI Mavic have ranges of around 2 to 3 miles“

    So yes, possible.

    What’s funny though is there’s no way they could possibly spot a drone with them going that fast.

    Drones are so small that it is very unlikely to make contact, and so light that if they did it would not likely cause much damage.
    Planes fly into much heavier objects like geese, often. But drones are becoming so common now, that regulations are a good idea, before the odds get to the fatal chances.
