How Many Receivers do You Own? Which Ones?

I'm curious... how many receivers do you own? Which ones?

Edit: I didn't realize how many of you have 10+ receivers. If you have 10+, post below how many you do have!

Currently in my possession:
2 - Hitec Electron 6
1 - Hitec Micro 555
1 - Hitec Super Slim
1 - Futaba FP-148DP
1 - GWS R4P

Owned in the past:
1 - Hitec Electron 6
1 - Berg 6 GIII

At one point I had 8 receivers! Then I realized that some weren't being used too often. I probably only fly about three or four airplanes/helicopters in a given week/month. It seems I cycle between what I fly so the receivers could cycle with me (some servos are starting to cycle too). I sold some and now I'm down to 4 receivers I use regularly. A fifth that I don't use is a GWS cheapy receiver that wouldn't be worth selling (only $20 anyway and could possibly be used on a future airplane that requires light weight components). I also acquired a PCM receiver for free recently so that's 6. Now I'm thinking of selling a receiver.

For me, the right number of receivers considering cost and convenience is 4 to 5. Any more is money sitting around. Only three starts to become inconvenient.

Wow. I didn't realize so many people had 10+ receivers. Looks like the poll is getting skewed. Like I stated above, reply with how many you have if it's 10+. I'm curious to know how many receivers the average flyer on these boards has.

I've been at this a long time and so have a bunch of receivers. I'm not sure I could list them all. What I have in planes I fly regularly are Bergs, Sombras, MikroDesigns units and now one from LightFlight RC that I've just begun to test.

I also have a dual conversion GWS 8 channel in one larger plane and a Hitec Slim 7 channel in another large plane. Both have been dependable for years.

I think I have one small GWS R4P that seemed to be an unusually good example of the type on one infrequently-flown close-in flyer. I've also replaced the stock Rx in a Wing Dragon with a Cirrus MRX-4-II with reasonable results.

There is one Blue Bird and a couple of Plantracos on hand that I would not dare fly.

That's all I can remember off the top of my head. Some of the 14 127s are actually the Hobbico cased version. They used to be on sale from time to time for $35 with crystal at Tower. I picked up a few!

I just totaled them up. I may be an addict!

Dude Gary! That's 42 receivers!!!

And Matt... that's 37+!

This thread should be who has the most receivers. How do you guys use so many? And I'm guessing you have more air vehicles than receivers too... haha.

Probably 3/4 of mine are in airframes of which probably 3/4 of them are currently flyable. I have more airframes than rxs but many are rarely flown or are in need or repair. Since I started flying 3D profiles, I keep about 10 nitros going and 5 or 6 foamys geared up along with three nitro helis.
I counted 7 rxs not installed but all but one is scheduled for an in-process airframe or in the build queue.
