Soon, you’ll be able to buy a flamethrower drone because sure, why not
You know what happens when your 10x engineer gets bored…
Starting tomorrow, you’ll be able to buy a completely legal flamethrower attachment to go onto a drone, thus fulfilling at least three of my childhood nightmares.
The ThrowFlame TF-19 Wasp is a $1500 flamethrower for commercial-grade drones, perfect for when you absolutely need to kill it with fire but don’t want to get anywhere near whatever it is.
Yes, you’ll be able to buy a Flamethrower Drone – but should you?
Let’s face it, it’s not every day you need to burn xenomorphs, face-huggers or the occasional wasp nest. Do you really need a flamethrowing drone? Couldn’t you make do with a can of Axe and a lighter? Maybe, but then you’d be more MacGuyver and less Ripley and I’m not really sure which is cooler.
Anyway, if you absolutely need this thing, here are some important stats:
- The flamethrower has a 25-foot range, with a one-gallon fuel tank that can piss fire for 100 seconds
- If you don’t want to build your own drone, the company will offer custom-built models starting at $1,000, with the sky being the literal limit at $10,000+
- The drone in the video above is a customized DJI S1000, which roughly translates to $2,600 of burning-a-hole-in-your-pocket cash
It’s available to buy on Thursday from ThrowFlame, priced at $1,499. Some people just want to watch the world burn…
