New Duracell commercial claims their batteries are in an electric Heli

It shows a Mini sized heli (not sure which brand) and they claim duracells are in the heli. They show the guy flying with a standard two stick TX. I searched
their wesite and no lipo's to be found. It's funny how much BS is in advertising. I bet they have like 8 double AA's in the heli

bunch of small helis like Blade CP, FP helis, etc. flying on AAA NiMh cells. I'm sure it can fly on AA cells. Not as well maybe.

What's the C rating for those fancy 'high drain' AA photo batteries? I bet it's still pretty low.

If anyone finds the commercial on a video site please post the link back here. (I have no TV).

this is a link to free satalite tv thru the internet. Has about 60 channels that concentrate on sports but also has Animal planet USA FOX NBC, ABC,HBO,STAR Sports CNN, ESPN 1-4 ect... and quality is really good sometimes its a lil glitchy for about 5 min but it clears right up. I use it to watch my FIA GT racin in the States.
