Grandson had been interested in drones, so we got him this for his 4th birthday. He learned to fly it indoors very quickly and has had hours of fun indoors and outdoors. Even though it has had lots of "crashes" and "mowed" many plants and bushes, have only gone through one of the replacement blades as the protection around them is very good. Yes, the housing has cracked, but not to the point of affecting operation, unlike several others that he has been given that were lucky to last more than a day without critical failures. Only issue now, after a year and a half, is that the batteries will not charge. Cannot figure out if it is the charger or batteries, but the light is supposed to go out, after polarity check, until the battery is charged, but the light no longer goes out and the batteries don't charge.
