Jamie Hyneman of ‘MythBusters’ Adds a Spinning Saw Blade to a Drone for Remote Landscaping

In a new video by Tested, MythBusters co-host Jamie Hyneman hacks a quadcopter, adding a small spinning saw blade to the bottom of a long gimbal in an attempt to perform some remote landscaping. Hyneman admits that he’s still got some work to do in order to perfect the somewhat dangerous “Arborist” drone.

You’ve got two things swinging around that you’re trying to coordinate with. I really thing we should try some pruning devices. That would be infinitely safer and not allow the thing that you’re cutting to just move out of the way.
