My wife bought me this for Christmas. I'm 37 and I think that this is one of the best toys that I've ever had. It is very responsive to commands to rotate, but going forwards, backwards, up and down takes a bit of getting used to and a steady hand. At first I found myself yo-yo-ing up and down trying to find the right throttle setting to maintain the altitude that I wanted. You also have to increase the throttle slightly to maintain this altitude if you then want to move forwards or backwards. Bit like the real thing I suppose. Having rockets that fire is the absolute icing on the cake and everything becomes a target.
Brilliant fun and highly recommended.
