The Flamethrower Drone…For Good!

Yes, the photos above are of a real flame throwing drone, but don’t worry its doing something good! In fact electric company maintenance workers in China are using the drone to burn away debris like plastic bags that are getting caught on high-voltage power lines.

Supposedly, this is safer than sending up a human, but we are not 100% sure about that because it is spewing fire. Regardless of how useful this kind of drone application ends up being used, at least it gives us all a few cool photos to enjoy.

One final thought…if it can spew fire, then it makes sense the drone could also be used to spew a fire retardant, which to the team here at Drone Dossier seems a lot more useful.
