This is Min-Chan Kim's latest video (I think). I guess he is now 6 years old. He is pretty amazing.
This video is in HD.

Watch at YouTube

Wow. Nuf said. 9 minutes down to the last drop of fuel, pretty good. I'm curious if this is an OS91HZ with the Cline Mod regulator.

What is the history on Min-Chan Kim? It would be interesting to know. Thanks.

Engine is the HEART of an r/c model, but THE PILOT is it's SOUL.

I think the key is to just not look at the heli when flying. I think I read that in some thread where someone was trying to teach how they perform maneuvers. LOL

Not to play a violin here...
If my parents could afford a multi-thousand dollar helicopter (29 years ago) when I was age four I might be worth something today. My big thing was Lincoln Logs, Legos, and Contrux. I think I had a styrophome free flight glider and some rubber power balsa stick planes, but nothing like a 90 size 3.5 horse helicopter. Granted helicopters where practically non-existant 29 years ago, these kids today don't know how incredibly good they have it - such intense technology in their little hands. Awesome.

Although the video said Min-Chan was 6, he is still 5 years old since he was born on March 6, 2004. He is almost 2 years younger and currently world's youngest competition level RC heli pilot.

I hope one that succeeds him come from US so I can watch him/her.

Not only does he fly great he does it bare handed in the snow!
My fingers would have been frostbit after one minute.

WOW
Makes a guy feel old, and yeah those fingers in the snow! Sam, quit making excuses...it would have been 45 years ago for me, and it was at best a slingshot with a rock that got airborne
Chuck don't quit, you were bustin' some new moves last week when I saw you.
Justin, you'd better watch your 6 O'clock, they keep gettin' younger

Nice work on digging up that video red_z06, it was awesome.

His dad isn't producing any videos. So, it is difficult to see him progress. I love watching him fly.

Perhaps he doesn't want to be hated like I was for posting so many videos.

Amazing flight from him as always and always a pleasure watching! I've been in Seoul, Korea a few times in the winters when it's freezing cold and sometimes colder than Alaska, it sure is amazing how he flies it like that as my hands shiver flying in Alaska's winter months burrrrr!

Benny, there are some people in here that can't be pleased no matter what. They seem to just knit pick on anything to find something to argue about to prove you wrong in anything you do. I wouldn't let it bother me if I were you. Justin is going to grow up to be a fine man and thanks to your support as a great parent. Keep it up and lets see more of Justin videos. Thanks for posting the video it was enjoyable.

Benny, your son is an inspiration to our children. My boy started flying at 8 yrs old on the sim. We hit the 2 year mark with RC in January. It became soon apparent that he could fly better than me, so we got him a TREX 500 for his 9th Birthday. He's now doing aggressive 3d, and last summer started flying my 600NSP and 700 . He may or not compete, but it's a great father son hobby. I trust him with all my birds, he crashes waaay less than me. If we hadn't seen Justin's videos, Nathan may not have taken up the sticks. Children are our future. Keep the videos coming.

Thank you for your kind words. I set out to document Justin's progress and I'm glad that most of his progress is now available for others to see. The videos are now less frequent because I can't see a noticeable improvement.

dragonfly

Take him to funflies as your son will really enjoy being around people of same interest. As for competition, if your son wants it, you should support him to the fullest. I'm sure your son will understand that it is much different than just flying and will require much practice.

Yes, we love funflys (been to 6). I support him alright, I finance and repair our fleet. We only attend the NW events (Brooks and Snohomish so far...) with Duckhead and Sam2b. He has many other interests as well (snowboarding, wakeboarding, golf, tennis, mountain biking, camping, fishing in addition to basketball, friends etc). I've learned not to push him (burned him out Salmon fishing at age 4). It's hard to balance it all out. Competition is costly and time consuming as you know. His mother's ideal vacation/camping trip is not a funfly. If he gets serious, we'll definitely support him, question remains; which sport or hobby?
