In 2015, a teenager from Connecticut raises the question of whether our robots have the right to carry weapons when a working flame thrower jury – and a semi-automatic pistol – has been jurying – to his trumpet.
But this Thursday, for better or worse, you will be able to build a flying flame thrower yourself. You are looking at the Throwflame TF-19 Wasp, a flammer flame flame flask for commercial heavy duty heavy duty cranes that can hit targets up to 25 feet, with a fuel tank of one gallon that can produce a fire for 100 seconds, the company said.
Keep in mind, the price of $ 1,499 for the flame launcher will not rise to the sky, as you will have to provide a drone – which you may have to compose after commercial trunks are often modular, and do not include things like flight controllers box.
Throwflame says The Verge that his video contains DJI S1000 drones with A2 flight control, 6S 16,000mAh LiPo battery and TBS Tango R / C remote control, which – check notes – can easily add another $ 2,600 at a price. (At the top you can also see a camera similar to GoPro.) The company says it also offers tailor-made cordless crankshafts, however, ranging from $ 1,000 to $ 10,000 or more, depending on how far and fast you should also fly and what kind of pictures you expect to be transferred home.
Why would you really need such a thing? Well, there was one example where the dron of flameters was used to clean the transmission line in China … and the company suggests it can be used for controlled burns of grass, and to destroy the nests of the axis, as a couple of examples.
The company says the flame thrower connector will begin selling on Thursday. Like Boing BoingDavid Pescovitz says, "What could go wrong?"
