OK everyone, I hope you have your thinking caps on. Next month will be a year since I got started in this great hobby. And I have recently been informed that INTOFPV.COM will be turning 1 also. This forum has helped me improve and learn so much. So I got together with the moderators of the forum and came up with this contest to help me give away a 3" starter kit. It is part of a 3" quad that I hardly used, less than an hour of flight time, and I'm no longer in need of. 

It has:
Diatone ET Frame
Piko BLX Flight Controller with a custom TPU Mount
4 EMAX RS1306 Red Bottom Motors

And as the title of the post says this contest will consist of a short quiz. of 12 multiple choice questions. One for every month INTOFPV has been online. (Thank You Oscar for helping me come up with the questions).

Rules of the contest are:
Member must have a minimum of 20 post
Only 1 entry per member
Entry must be in by January 28th before 12 Midnight Pacific Standard Time (I will be going off the time stamp of the PM, so the best bet would be to get your answers in before the 28th.)

In the event of a tie there will be a tie breaker question which will be posted on 29th for all the qualified members.

Please send your answers to me in a Private Message. I will post the answers, along with everyone's totals on the 29th.

Before I post the questions. Here's a little hint: correct answers can be found by searching the forum.

And please send me your answers in this format:

1. a
2. b
3. c
4. d

It will help make it easier for me to check your answers. Thank you and Good Luck
