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.

There is an old adage in business " Everyone rises to their own level of incompetence "
I believe the human race has reached that goal .

Oh great! Another destructive machine. to attack the earth with. Drones, like the one featured, probably started or continued the California fires. Keep it up humans you're going to be sheared off the planet for good.

Wouldn't surprise me if something like this was used to start all those fires this past year.
