I just saw this in the footer of the site, "Currently Active Users (in the last 15 minutes): 5,276." One of the things I'm always watching on RCG are the stats. That was pretty close to setting an all time record for the most users ever online!
Another thing I like to watch is how many unique users we get a day. This is a mind numbing number that can sometimes be hard to believe. I use Google Analytics for my data so I know it's real. Yesterday we had over 172,000 visitors - CRAZY! It's great to think there are that many like minded RC pilots out there in the world!
Another interesting fact is that RCGroups.com gets between 1.4 to 1.7 million unique visitors a month. Wrap your head around that!

If you want to put your finger on the pulse of the site we have an app that will let you see threads as they are created in real time on RCG. You can see the Forum Spy here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/spy.php?
