Oldest 3D Pilot

I've gotten really good with my Syma 107 and think i'm ready for a 700 Goblin.
But really, what is the oldest good 3D pilot you know? I would have never believed it but my age might be slowing my reflexes. I've flown for 2 years and didn't even want to 3D but now would like to be able to fly my 450s and 500 like I do on sim or my mCPX. I just did a reveres inverted circle on my mPCx but can't on my larger more easy to fly helis. I think I'm just afraid of smashing the helis I spent all that time getting it set-up perfect.
I know you guys are saying that I just described 3d heli flying, but do any of you have any tips to overcome my fear of trying more stuff with larger helis. I've done some flips and can now do reveres circle.
Maybe I should ask CaptJac for some tips.

Ok, found the answer.

Fly two mistakes high. If you were to make a mistake on the mcpx, how high do you have to be to be able to react fast enough to save it? Scale that up to 450 size and double it.

A young lad of 60+ years old by the name of Eduardo T. in Orange County, CA. He bangs the sticks just as good as the young hot rod 3D flyers. There may be a video or two of him flying on youtube.
