Please look below my avatar and see what "Distance from you" says.
This is a copy and paste from yours:
Distance from you: 6743 mi

funny, eh?

You need to put a "-" negative sign in front of your longitude for the software to calculate your position correctly. If you leave it off it thinks you're in China.

Hey SARG5, I was thinking about you needing to do searches for things. I forgot, I was going to mention how I do it.
Look at the blue bar going across with the various places you can click on and go to.
See how it has... "My RCGroups", "Blogs", "Classifieds", etc etc... well put your mouse cursor over "Search" and right click over it instead of left click. It should bring up a drop down box that gives you options to "Open", "Open in new tab", "Open in new window", these all depending on what kind of browser you are using. Just right click over "Search", get that drop down and left click on one of the open's and it will bring you to an awesome search page allowing you to search for a certain word or group of words and tailor make that search to look in post's or just titles and then include whatever forum of threads you want to include. Really nice and super fast way to find anything you are looking for.

I typed in T-28, highlighted "Titles only" ("posts" will bring up hundreds of hits) and then highlighted search in "Foamies Scratchbuilt" and poof, thread pages with T-28 in the titles.
Hope that helps your searching. But if you already knew that, then just disregard my babling on & on.

Jimmy

Yep, SARG
Google says you live in:
Qilian, Haibei, Qinghai, China

I wonder if that has better flying weather than Ks?

Thank you for the info on the T-28
I will keep looking at what you suggested JFlyer. Yep, I do need a CHEAT SHEET to make about anything happen on the computer.
Now for my location. I will try and get the location corrected somehow. As I remember the only thing that I put in was my Add. and zip code. Will take a look.

Ok, Did it. Should be correct now.
I am also an member of CoCoRaHs [Community Collaborative Rain, Hail & Snow Network]
That is where the error was made on my part. Did not see the - and +.
If any of you would like to help out with weather. Take a look at www.cocorahs.org/login.aspx Great place to help out.
AND ALL OF YOU RC FLYERS CAN GET A HANDLE ON WHEN YOU CAN FLY. BECAUSE YOU WILL KNOW BEFORE EVERYONE ELSE WHEN THE GREAT FLYING WEATHER IS GOING TO ARRIVE IN YOUR AREA.

LOL - I think you got the minus sign on the wrong number.
I think it should be on the second number instead of the first.
Distance to you now reads 12081 mi - about TWICE what it was LOL

Google now says that you are in the Indian Ocean SW of Australia.
The weather down there might be really great
