Flame Throwing Drone Burns Trash Off High Voltage Lines

An electric power maintenance company in Xiangyang, China is using drones to burn trash off high-voltage lines. Plastic bags and other debris often gets stuck on the high voltage lines, and it isn’t quite safe to send a human to fix that problem. Enter the fire breathing octocopter that burns the crap out of all that crap. We suspect engineers managing these drones would be quite eager to give a demonstration of their skills, or thoroughly clean every inch of the lines. There are a couple more pics, but unfortunately no video of the drone in action.
