A flamethrower drone attachment that can shoot a seven-metre long stream of fire for 100 seconds is being sold online by US company Throwflame.
Called the TF-19, the attachment allows “recreational and commercial users to remotely ignite targets from up to several miles away”, and is available to purchase for around £1,200. The accessory features a one-gallon fuel capacity and can integrate with most commercially available drone units.
According to the company’s website “anyone can buy one without background checks or a waiting period”, as “flamethrower drones are federally legal and not considered weapons”.
Throwflame suggests that the attachment can be used for agricultural burns, to melt snow or for pyrotechnics.
