Are You a Mini Heli Hoarder?

Especially these inexpensive 3-channel coaxials like the S107, 6010, 9098, etc, etc?

So how many do you have, or have you had at one time? How many have you killed? How many have you modified? ... etc, etc.

I just started getting into this and have one S107 with another S107 and a 6010 in shipping. It seems that it's hard to resist buying some of these due to the low cost and the variety available.

I'm sure some of you have been buying and flying mini coaxials for a while now ... I know some of you must have many dozen if not hundreds. Fess up ... let's hear the "confession of a heli hoarder".

It's a sickness, I'm telling y'all!

I'm afraid to count how many sub micro IR 3 Ch helis, 4 CH sub micros, 3 CH micros, 3 CH midsize, 3 CH large size, 4 CH mid size coaxial, 4 CH large size, on and on , that I've acquired in the last 6 months or so? After Black Friday, I had 10 helis in transit. I have currently 4 toys in transit. It's been pretty commmon for me in the last several months have 3-4 toy helis in transit during any given week. I guess I can admit I am not only a major hoarder but also a strung out Junkie when it comes to my addiction of "RCHeli Crack"

I find it hard to resist buying these things especially with some of the good deals out there. Just today, I ordered 3 helis if that tells you anything.

If only micro CP helis were as cheap and could take as much abuse as these lightweight 3ch micros...

I've got three micro helis. A S107, Falcon VIII, and a Interceptor from Costco. I broke the Interceptor and lack of repair parts (blade holder clips) prompted me to buy an esky Lama and Honey Bee FP v2. My wife would consider that hoarding, so I'll just have her read this thread to see what a REAL hoarder has. lol

It is very tempting to collect these, but until something really new and different comes out (e.g cheap, effective battling 3-channel gyro copters) my hanger is full with 7 fliers, 3 junkers:
2x6010 (1 with a S016 Hughes body)
1x6025
2xS107 (1 is the missus')
1xSyma S013 Blackhawk
1xSyma S018 Bell 222 Airwolf

Likely to end up in a trashcan/stripped for parts:
1xAirhogs tandem rescue (had many fun flights, but it's time has come...)
1x6020 (killed it by using a 6010 USB charger)
1x6020 clone
