Meet your worst nightmare. The Throwflame TF-19 Wasp.
It’s a commercial-grade heavy lift drone that has a functional flamethrower attachment capable of spitting fire at targets located 25 feet away.
All it requires is a gallon of fuel to produce a stream of fire for… wait for it — 100 seconds. That’s more than a minute and a half.
In case you’re mulling on using it to sneak up to that annoying colleague’s home and spit out a stream of fire, this drone is certainly not built for that.
According to The Verge, it’s actual use would be to clear power lines in China and to destroy wasp nests.

In fact, the drone you see in the video is a custom built DJI S1000 drone with an A2 flight controller. It comes with a 6S 16,000mAh LiPo battery and a TBS Tango R/C remote.
Throwflame is offering custom build drones for films and the prices range between US$1,000 to US$10,000.

This is not the flamethrower drone though. In 2015, a teenager from Connecticut had rigged a flamethrower and a semiautomatic pistol onto his drone.
