NEW WORLD RECORD EVER REGISTERED: A Drone That Flies For 4 Days Without Landing, Discovered

Coming up with new discoveries may be tiresome and hectic. The whole procedure is composed of a series of research which may require a lot of time and resources. The whole process may run for a period of 10years for one to fully verify his or her new discovery. However, undergraduate students from Beijing University in China have challenged us by making a discovery of a drone that can fly for four days.

On Sunday, September 3, 25 undergraduate students from Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, unveiled a world record certification from the International Aeronautical Federation. The team is composed of students from different grades and majors. On average, they have ages of less than 20 years old.

The students developed an unmanned aerial vehicle that has broken the world record for drone flight time. The new "Feng Ru 3-100" drone can fly continuously for 80 hours, 46 minutes and 35 seconds, which is approximately four days, before landing back.

After developing the drone, the students took it for a test in order to determine it's time for flight. This was done on May 21 in Xuchang, central China's Henan Province. They made the fixed-wing aircraft to circle at an altitude of 300 meters without refueling it.
