Cleveland Company releases flamethrower drone
Cleveland company, ThrowFlame, is now selling an attachment that can turn your drone into a flame-thrower that can hit targets 25 feet away for up to 100 seconds.
The attachment allows “recreational and commercial users to remotely ignite targets from up to several miles away”. The accessory has a one-gallon fuel capacity and can integrate with most commercially available drone units.
It can be used to clear debris from power lines, get rid of nests, help with remote agriculture burns, and even start back-burns to contain wild-fires.
The attachment is available for purchase online and cost about $1.500. A waitlist has already been listed for the product.
According to the ThrowFlame, flamethrower drones are federally legal and not considered weapons; however, users are still required to comply with the FAA’s UAS rules in addition to local ordinances.
