Over the course of the four-minute video, the drone mostly hovers in place while launching jets of flame onto a dead and spitted turkey. In the United States, some local laws prohibit flamethrowers. California requires special licensing, and Maryland has an outright ban. After a crowdfunded flamethrower made the rounds online, Detroit banned the production, storage, and use of flamethrowers. It's likely also that local laws, not federal ones, would regulate the use of flamethrowers attached to unmanned vehicles, though if the roasting took place on private property and without complaint, it could be entirely legal.
