Move over Elon Musk’s “Not-A-Flamethrower” flamethrower. That is because a new flamethrower has been released to the public that can be easily mounted onto a DJI drone, can shoot napalm at targets up to 25 feet away for approximately 100 seconds.
Cleveland based ThrowFlame, the oldest flamethrower company in the US, is now selling on its website the TF-19 WASP Flamethrower Drone Attachment to anyone who has a DJI Spreading Wings S1000+ Professional Octocopter.
The lightweight flamethrower attachment has a one-gallon fuel capacity and is used primarily for agriculture burns, clearing debris from power lines, managing insects, and can even light back-burns to contain wild-fires, the company explained on its website.
The attachment is available for purchase for $1,500 or can be financed by Splitit for $83 per month.
Fox 8 Cleveland said with the increased buzz about the aerial flamethrower; a waiting list has already developed.
ThrowFlame specifically outlined to potential customers in the item description that drones with flame flowers are “federally legal and not considered weapons; however, users are still required to comply with the FAA’s UAS rules in addition to local ordinances.”
The company has several land-based flamethrowers called the X15 and XL18 that can shoot napalm 50 feet to 110 feet, respectively.
Ground-based flamethrowers have more capabilities than the TF-19 WASP, including the use for snow and ice removal and firefighting and training.
In comparison to Musk’s $500 flamethrower, well, it’s absolutely junk when compared to a ThrowFlame’s products.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
