Weird, unique and intersting drones applications
China – Flamethrowing drones burn trash off powerlines
In Xiangang, China, when a flying piece of trash lands on one on their enormous powerlines and threatens to cause an outage, they don’t have time to mess around. Rather than getting someone in a Cherry Picker to rise up there and pick it off, they send in heavy artilery: fire-spewing drones.
Electric company maintenance workers control the drone from the ground and shoot short bursts of flame to sizzle any debris sitting atop the high-volate wire but manage to do so without burning through the lines. Clever but perhaps a little scary.
