Hopefully these have not been posted before and I missed them.    Crude but valid test of drone operation in a flammable area.   I could see a fireman wanting to know.

Not much that could produce a spark with all the plastic that's on a drone.  Getting too close to a fire could have a bad consequence.  I guess maybe they wanted to use it maybe checking for gas leaks or something.

Many times they are entering areas where there is no fire, but the possibility of a flammable atmosphere is a very valid concern.   I could see the value of scouting an area of concern, say a chemical/petroleum type plant with a leaking tank would be a prime area for a drone.

Great information but does anybody know if there have been any tests conducted in fireground conditions i.e. smoke (carbon particles etc) heat, currents etc etc?

Thanks for doing this. Many government agencies will use this to determine the safety of using drones to assist in their needs.
