They look good fun, I have never seen one before.

What are they like to use and maintain?

Have a look at hobbyking.com for cheap cars. I have got planes and still learning to fly my helicopter!

Could do a lot of damage to a caravan

If you like helicopters there is a fly in at Charmouth later in the year. Its at the campsite i believe.

I on occasion take either Model Aeroplanes or boats. (not my Avatar, too big).
The planes are not flown on the campsite but my model Corvette or Puffer has provided entertainment on site pools.
The transmitter being shared out amongst the children.

I just bought a parkzone champ to play with if there is not too much wind.

Kids love it. Don't know if the warden will

There is a gyroscope in the rear wheel which makes them pretty stable. They are robustly made and all the components can be purchased to repair or upgrade. Very little maintenance required.
Pretty easy to use but looks like you need to be really skilled!

I am going into space in a vehicle made from over 3 million components, each manufactured by the lowst bidder - Neil Armstrong

Get the youngsters involved with the sport. We did well over twenty years ago and this is where it got him http://www.brca.org/index.php?q=sect...l-sleigh/14783

As someone above said, find your local club and enjoy the comradeship and the competition.
