New attachment turns drones into aerial flamethrowers

National

A flame-throwing drone sounds nightmarish, but it will soon be a reality.

The TF-19 Wasp, a functional flame-spewing drone attachment, can hit targets 25 feet away and spray fire for up to 100 seconds.

The manufacturer, Throwflame, says the device can be used for removing debris from power lines, burning down wasp nests from afar, forest fire containment back-burns and remote agriculture burns.

The attachment went on sale Thursday, costing about $1,500.
