We normally think of drones being used for those amazing videos of the Wicklow Mountains or flying out over sea, but as actual weapons?

Definitely not. Sure, you had Robot Wars back in the day - but those things weren't exactly easily accessible to the public, right? You couldn't walk into a shop and ask for a drone that could chop down a tree or something.

Yet, that's exactly what a trio of farmers (farmers, really?) from Finland decided to do. They attached a giant chainsaw to a drone to see what happens.

As you do. Totally normal behaviour.

Believe it or not, the drone wasn't able to take down balloons. In fact, balloons were its Achilles' heel, if you will. Why's that, you ask? Take a look at this.
