What have you to say about how long it takes to set up your machine-current or an old one. What I am looking for is what is about as long a effort you feel was worth it ----and was there a machine that was just too long and you bailed on it because it was too much of a "B"? The top end winner was the UP Red Tail at 60 seconds bag to preflight! What I looking for is on the other end How much time is okay and how much is too much.

That depends on how many times you intend to launch!

I met a guy this weekend who can set up his T2C in the same time it take me to set up my Falcon (15 min total from bag to ready-to-fly).

I asked "how the hell do you do that?"...he said " I don't screw around!"....oh and he lives at launch and flies all the time.

BTW T2C and Falcon both sled-ride the same.
