RCGroups Plus Account Contest - Find the Gnome!

Fly on the Virtual Joe Nall field and if you find the gnome you win a Plus Account!

Splash

Search Triple Tree For a Chance to Win a 12 Month Plus Account!

I have hidden a gnome somewhere on the virtual Joe Nall field. When you find the gnome take a screen shot and email it to me.

What You Win

Winners will receive a 12 month Plus membership on RCG. That's a value of $49.95!

Learn more about the Plus account here.

What You Will Need

First you need RealFlight. Luckily there are a huge amount of RF pilots out there in the RC world! The RealFlight flight sim has an online feature that allows you to fly with other users. Then gnome is located on the multiplayer live session field, so you have to get on our live field to find the gnome. There are a few things you will need to get going.

Where to Download

I have uploaded the field to the Knife Edge download page. This field can be used with three versions of RealFlight, RF7 through RF9.

How to import your airport.

  • Go to "Simulation" "Import" "RealFlight Archive" and find your file.
  • You can then go to "Environment" "Select Airport..." to pick the new airport.

Log On and Fly Virtually!

  • When you are in RealFlight you will see a top-level menu - Multiplayer.
  • Click on that to the "Join" option.
  • Find the "Official Virtual Joe Nall - RCGroups" and log on!
  • The PASSWORD is - rcgroups

Is it within the bounds of Triple Tree, or could it be anywhere in the vast wilderness surrounding the airfield? If it's in a manageable area, I'll keep looking, but otherwise, that map is too big!

It's there. I found it and emailed Jim. Not sure if I'm the first, or the winner, but I can confirm the gnome exists at virtual Joe Nall.

I sent the full screenshot to Jim, but attached is a highly cropped photo of the gnome (so I don't give away the location for other gnome hunters... )
