ThrowFlame Creates Flamethrower Drone

Most of today’s drones are designed for basic aerial photography, but there are some that have been recently outfitted with flamethrowers. Designed by Throwflame, the TF-19 Wasp was made for industrial or agricultural use to remotely and safely ignite ground or aerial targets. By using the TF-19 drones, companies can safely remove debris from power lines, eliminate insect nests, and create remote agriculture burns. The TF-19 Wasp has an ignition range of up to 25 feet and a fuel capacity of one gallon, giving the drone a torching time of about a minute and a half. Throwflame designed the drone off of the DHI S1000 which offers a five pound payload capacity. The DJI S1000 then connects to a rail attachment which allows for flamethrower use.
