This quadcopter is tiny (about the size of a quarter!) and only for indoor use. that being said, it's a lot of fun! i did try it on my front lawn first (on a nice sunny day) to make sure i could fly it without damaging myself or my kitchen, and it really does fly. it took me a little time to get used to the controls and figure out how to get it to work but i did it. it's not the most finely tuned controls but it is a fun little copter and will give you and your kids (and most likely your husband:) hours of flying fun.
