I honestly see nothing wrong with what this video shows. The guy was specific in mentioning first that you should be aware of what he was doing as being the least recommended method of repairs. So far as the taping, if i break a rotor blade i have stocked up on them so i don't have to resort to taping but i have taped in the past. Co-axial heli's are light enough that taping is ok...NOT OPTIMAL but ok

If this had been a larger full articulation heli like the Trex 450s or blade 400s or larger i wouldn't recommend trying to tape...however on minor blade strikes with the wooden blades i use super glue / CA to reinforce and rebalance the blades. If a piece completely comes off those blades i just replace them.

So far as your cousin doing it...if he or she knows what they are doing leave them alone until it's really something truly unsafe or leads to soemthing unsafe.

I think you are being a little critical. I mean if you don't like the taping of the blades, I can't imagine what you must think of the hand catching and launching. I don't have a problem until he starts super glueing pitch links on a 90.

+1, I have CA'd everything on co-axial heli's. However, once you get to the 400 size and bigger, I would be very very careful. 400 and larger heli's can be very dangerous. I was hovering in my garage and lost control. The Blade 400 blades cut a corogated cardboard box in half. Flying parts can really come off with unbelievalbe velocity.

Be safe
