Think You Know RCG Well? << An RCG Trivia Game >>

I played this on another forum and it turned out to be a lot of fun.

Ground Rules

1. A user asks a question about anything RCG. Someone answers it.

2. The user answering the questions earns the right to ask the next question.

Helpful Suggestions

A. Questions asked should be about factual stuff on RCG so that answers can be proved by a link. Opinionated questions such as "what is the best beginner plane" should not be asked.

B. Questions can be asked anytime, but to avoid confusion, we should try to limit the amount of unanswered questions.

C. If a user posts a question that is not answered correctly in 24 hours, the initiator of that question should quote the question along with his/her hint in another post.

D. Anyone can dispute an answer believed to be correct if a link to the true answer is provided.

That's all there is to it. I can update this post with a running tally for who has answered the most questions correctly for RCG bragging rights.

Bonus questions are worth 2 points

Let the fun begin.

Here is the first question:

What user started at least two really long threads, loved by some, hated by others, that discussed a piece of equipment typically used in a gym.

Bonus question:

What was the title of one of those threads?

That's correct.

Since you answered that correctly, are you going to post another question or defer it to someone else?

OK, here is a question for the "old timers."

There was an RCG member who was pretty vocal about certain things. I enjoyed his posts, most were meant to be humorous, but he did rub a few people wrong at times. As a matter of fact, on some items this person was so vocal, Jim B decided/joked that he would allow this user to be a moderator each week for a whole day. I believe Tuesday was that day.

Name that RCG user.

Bonus question.

Link the photo of Jim B, with the blackboard, at their weekly meeting.

Another history question: The combination of a Hacker B20 motor and Kan1050 cells used in a Switchback or MiniFlash was given a special name. What was the name of that combination?

I'll take a crack at it.
It's not a slow stick... it's not a zagi.

It does have a nickname...after a long time user here, bashed it pretty good...He bashed it so well, that Hobby Lobby had a sale on these planes, with the nickname, in honor of this current, longtime member.

Name the plane.
For a bonus, name the member it is nicknamed after.

In the interim, here is another question.

There was a GWS plane made famous for its travels around the world. It was the subject of many threads and posts and it even made it into Model Aviation magazine.

What is the name of that airplane and the project?

Bonus question (worth 2 points)

Where is the plane now and post a link to the photo of its current location

Extra bonus question (worth 3 points)

Name the originator of the project and provide a link to "how it all began"
