This multirotor starts fires, but for a great reason. Researchers at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, are working on a project called the Unmanned Aerial System for Firefighting. It uses a multirotor to deliberately drop fireballs to ignite grasslands under relatively controlled circumstances as a preemptive measure to neutralize flammable areas and make it more difficult for wildfires to spread.
