It goes over everything, and our testers loved that it really does climb the stairs - very cool.  And it has no problem roaming over terrain thats off limits to other RCs - grass and gravel are easy. As well, this unit can get itself out of a stuck position. But it it's slower than our testers expected, which some tough probably a good thing as they say its a little challenging to master the control. All families note that it makes a lot of noise, so best played with outside - even if there's less opportunity to do the stairs trick.
