The attached pic shows a Fire Fighting Drone.

The Drone is operated via wireless with the pilot wearing a 3D goggles with the video coming from a camera on the drone.
The tank outer skin is covered by the batteries with the tank water keeping them cool.
The electric motors (blades & pump) do not need oxygen so can fly through air containing no oxygen.
When empty the drone returns and lands in a tank with the water sucked up via the nozzle.
The legs provide the conduction path to charge the batteries and power the pump while refilling.

Hi Bugs,

I like your way of thinking,small models at first just to get things right and then how big could you go 1 kilo per litre of water it's going to be a lot of weight to lift

It would be a lot safer than sending our boys in

Cheers,Ron

A cubic metre tank would weigh 1 ton, that's a heck of a lot more than a firefighter could carry.
The remote pilot could guide it to really hot spots and drown them.

Hi Bugs,

I think the batteries to run this would be excessively large probably have to run its own generator for power...we use drones to kill people why not to save some

A large number batteries would be required and despite the large current draw the Aluminum tank + the water would help keep them cool both during use and charging. I forgot to add the second rotor which rotates in the opposite direction, three or four rotors could also be used. The same pump is used to spray and refill the tank. If the nozzle is spraying downwards (ideal) then less battery energy is required by the rotor/s.
