Three to four minimum. I'm a little over that number. With at least three you have a backup and a backup for the backup. And is there anyone in this hobby that never needed a 2nd backup? Plus you aren't putting all the wear and tear on one heli.

give me nitro or give me death

I've had more but slowly dropped off it can get a bit frustrating trying to maintenance or fly all of them
I have a Toyota 4 runner and I had 15 helis going to airfield

Now I am down to three

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)

Been there done that. Now I have two. A 90 and a 450 size. Can't justify having more than two. Although a nice scaler would be quite welcome

No matter how many i have, I always bring 2 to the field.... So the perfect number is 2. Any more than that just creates extra maintinence issues to overlook and get you into trouble.

If you put 2 in the dirt on the same day,it's time to go home because it ain't your day.

I've had more at once but for me the magic number is now 4:

2 X identical 50's for beating on and so you have a backup
1 X small electric (450-500) for school fields, parks etc.
1 X 90 - just because 90's are incredible to fly

Any more than this and it is very hard to fly and maintain them all, as has been stated.

I have 500 rc helis and have a staff of ten people to service and tune all 500 heli's. I then have my topless secretary call down for me to the "crew" at my private airfield that big Daddy wants to fly,,and fly NOW!!! When I arrive at MY airfield I ask for the "HELI MENU" and the "Heli Of the Day"..... then I fly my favorite,,,usually a Blade Cx with training pants,,,,,,,,

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

My reasoning is actually the exact same as JAGNZ. The only difference is that I have 2 different 50's. I just like variety. I pound on my 450SE when I'm learning something new and then do the maneuver on the 50.
