Default How many of you own more than one Blade 450x?

I just got a second one, and was thinking do I really need both of these?

What do you guys think?

Depends on how often you crash and what other helis you have to fly while you are awaiting parts and/or time to repair the bird.

I have one already, love it, was honestly thinking of purchasing a second one myself. Believe you just pushed me over the edge. Great, now I have someone to blame if my wife finds out

I have two and need both. I fly both every time. I have a rule, always go home with a perfect heli, so if something goes wrong I stop and go home with still one good heli.

Truth be told I usually take at least 6 or 7 heli's to the park...

Does it count if I have 2 Blade 450 3Ds converted to FBL (granted 1 is in many, many pieces) and a 450x coming on the big brown truck...

Doing it this way allows me to keep a lot of spare parts on hand if/when needed.

My wife thinks hookers and crack would have been cheaper than RC helicopters and guns (my two favorite hobbies).

Holding off on buying a second until I'm competent on this one; just carry an mCPX or two with me to the park both as a nerves-catharsis before breaking out the 450, and in case there are too many people around to fly the big one.
Though I've bought almost enough spares to build a second one outright.

I'd honestly have been happier if Horizon sold a 'crash kit' that was basically the entire heli minus electronics for $150 or so.
