I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my 9 and 10 year old boy. I didn't think they were old enough for a drone yet but wanted something beyond the standard remote control cars and monster trucks.
This was a good option for them. i purchased extra batteries before this was given to them.
This was easy to drive over any terrain had no problems with rough rocky terrain. He drove it over larger rocks to see if it could. He and his brother both got one and had fun playing with them. There has been many hours put on these trucks since Christmas.
They are durable to withstand crashes without damaging the body.
An 8 & 9 year old had no issues driving these and would even be acceptable for a 5 year old to control.
i did like the fact that it uses regular AA batteries so we can take along a few sets and then recharge the batteries over night
