This Fire-Spraying Drone Is Not a Weapon

Power lines tend to collect trash when the wind blows. Plastic bags and other assorted trash stuck in the lines can be dangerous. Apparently, in Xiangyang, China, they┬ánow send drones up to sort out the mess… with fire!

These fire-spraying drones burn off trash that gets stuck on high-voltage wires, keeping humans out of harm’s way. The drones are being used by an electric power maintenance company in China to get rid of plastic bags and other debris. I can only guess the fire is applied for a short enough burst not to damage the wires’ insulation.

It is a great use of both drones and fire – not that I condone this combination. That’s a crazy deadly mix, but here we are. It should not be long until one of these firebugs is sent by a hit man to burn a house down or fry you right where you stand.
