Default Keep extra TREX 450SE or trade?????

I recently bought a TREX 450SE kit and then found another one a week later in a mom and pop pawn shop. Both are new in the box and complete with an ESC and Brushless.
Question - do I build one and keep the other for parts or maybe trade/sell one to fund servos, receiver and gyro for the other??

I'd kind of like to trade one for a large electric heli of some kind.

What would you do with the duplicate heli???

Thanks

I have 3 T-Rexes. Why? So I can TRY to always keep at least 2 in flying condition. There's nothing I hate more than to be flying and have a dumb thumb boom strike or something like that and have to stop to do repairs or worse yet, wait for parts I don't have on hand.

Keep'em/build'em both to fly and count your blessing for the deals you got.

Can I be brutally honest with you? If you think you might need to sell one to buy servos, etc., you may be getting into the wrong hobby (helis). Crashes are part of the life much more so than airplanes (IMO and I fly both). This is an expensive segment of RC. It's not for the weak of heart or pocketbook. Not saying that you said so but just reading between the lines a little (my interpretation of what you said).

Good luck!

Keep both.
Then, after you get good with them, but a bigger electric, oh, say, something like the T-Rex 600.
