I just watched the video.

The flying was done well in front of the pilot, the kids were quite a distance behind the flight line, no one was wandering around the flight area, and he kept he heli out and away at all times. It was a well controlled flight line, the teachers did a good job of keeping the audience seated and well away from the flying. The demonstration appeared to be well within the established AMA safety code.

This looked to be a much more safe flight demo than you'd probably see at most fun flies or other organized events.

Well done, not only the flying, but in keeping the flight area safe and well controlled.

I see the exact same thing...

Others are just in shock because of his age and start inventing things to lash out against.

If this was one of the older flyers...They would ALL be applauding the flight and how it was handled.

Absolutely agree there. The pilots age doesn't matter. I've had the pleasure of standing next to Justin Chi and never had a question as to his ability and understanding of responsibility although many did. Heck, I was a LOT more nervous standing next to Tim Jones.Team POP Secret

Ryan, accompanied by his father, Todd, displayed an outstanding performance to the principal, faculty staff, and fellow students.

His student class status in popularity will be evident in the years to come.

Great job Ryan.

Ryan, accompanied by his father, Todd, displayed an outstanding expensive toy to the principal, faculty staff and fellow students who knew something like that was out of reach for 99.9% of them.

His student class status in popularity will be evident in the years to come because he showed he's got access to the big toy bucks, as compared to his fellow students.

stubbs....Seriously?
Are you really that petty and jealous?

Out of reach for 99% of them?
That's ridiculous.

I would say that the majority of them will have motorcycles and ATVs and computer games and toys that will put the price of an RC heli to shame.

WOW...Think man....The kid can no doubt outfly you and most of the guys on this board.

This is not hard to understand guys.
One more time just for the few here that have a hard time grasping this.
Nobody said he cant fly, or that he was not in control, in fact just the opposite.
Do you really think he can control a mechanical or electrical failure?
And lets say there was one, do you think the teachers could block the heli from the kids that were sitting on the ground?
Or that the kids could dodge the heli or a blade heading for them.
And say it does get out of control and kill a child, please tell me would you encourage this type of demostration again with no buffer in place.

Can you please answer that last question truthfully.
Its all earth!

YES...

It was more controlled than MOST flights at ANY fun fly.

And I mean the situation was controlled...Not the flight.

THIS particular flight is well within any safety guidelines you can come up with.

Do YOU have 10-20 spotters when YOU fly?

Stubbs, you are way out of line with those remarks. This was a demonstration at a "TALENT CONTEST". Had he played Chopin or Rachmaninoff on a grand piano, played a Mozart Horn Concerto on a double French Horn, or a Violin solo, you'd be amazed at his talent, and not point out the expense of the instruments, or the cost of the lessons and other items needed to perform well.

As you should well understand, the helicopter is a tool, it will not fly well by itself, nor will it do much more than gather dust if not flown. The young man's skill was on display, not the expense of the equipment.

As pointed out, the remainder of the kids in the class do not appear to be homeless waifs whose parents live under highway overpasses with no income. You have no idea of what other equipment was used in the demonstrations the others no doubt were called upon to display when their turn came up.

something else to think about
aaa, I don't think that was an AMA approved flying field, so for that mater IF he did crash and did hurt someone he would not have had 3 Mill in insurance backing him
