Impressive endurance test, now if batteries could just last this long.

Is it me or is this copter being powered externally via the 2 wires hanging from it?
It's on external power but still an impressive endurance test on ESC's and motors.
What happened after 72 hours?
@John- Great question...:)
typical marketing stunt, because an endurance test based on an external power supply is totally useless. It does not event puts to the test the "DJI" copter, but rather the lifetime of the motor's bearings (and/or ESCs).
if it is to test life duration of motors, you can do this with a motor on a bench...
After 72 hours, they've proved their point. That's a full weekend of flying, non-stop.
You have to start on Friday, and it might spill over into Monday...
You guys have weekends? I have kids instead...my flight time is measured in minutes, quite literally.
I noticed the S1000 is tethered, and the cables are under tension. Why not let it hover by itself? It'll be less strain for a start, and a more real world test. I'm assuming it can get GPS lock, of course.
