Sure. People (which is to say, most people on earth) who can barely operate a motor vehicle with wheels competently can't possibly go wrong with something that flies.

As long as the electronic systems will shut down *all* motors if one of the motor drives (ESCs) has a fault.

I mean, I'd rather not lose my lunch flipping wildly through the sky before I die by smashing into the earth.
