This makes a lot of assumptions, such as that there is no on-board intelligence to continue the "mission" when the C2 link is lost. 
GPS could be jammed, but inertial nav is OK in the air for a bit. And GPS jamming is a dangerous thing to do because of collateral 
damage.  And it's not like the beam is going to be hard to place in the landscape.

Let the technical arms race commence.

The most effective solution is probably going to be something like an attack drone that spits out micro filament to tangle the 
rotors. Or a big drone that simply scoops up the little one.
