    Interesting insight into some DJI testing procedures. That is one slick rig I must say. Must make a huge hole in the wallet though. :D

    Kind of bullshit and disingenuous that they didn't state right away it was not on a battery. So it runs, without wind or a load, or being steered without catching fire or blowing up. BFD. Really, DJI, get a life.

    Busted. I missed that.

    Still, so it works in a controlled environment. So what?

    It's just an standard endurance test...running any type of motor or engine for a single continuous period of time like that can reveal faults that aren't immediately apparent in normal everyday use. Your car probably gets you around town, or even long trips, just fine...but do you think the engine would hold up the same if you just ran it continuously for 72 (or even 48) hours?

    To be fair, it's a bit of a red herring without any other test results (like from competitive equipment) to compare it to, but it does seem to show the ability to survive at least that uncommon level of stress.

    Did you notice in the smaller video at the bottom right, after they raised the landing gear, looked like they were flying it in the rain!
