    Might have to make this one. Last big launch I went to was LDRS in 2002. Current LDRS is of completely and utter fail. LDRS with max M motor, 17kft waiver, no EX, and 1/3 of the available motor manufactures banned? No thanks.

    Will have to see if I can make BALLS and Airfest.

    Like past years, AirFest will feature plenty of wide open recovery space, a 50,000'AGL waiver and plenty of friends and vendors. It's not too early to start making plans to attend.

    Who's coming and what are you planning on flying this year?
    What is the web address for Airfest?

    Tell me about it. We couldn't justify that truck and our toy hauler if we didn't have all these great launch venues to travel to.

    Cool!! I have a 2017 ram cummins 2500 last April 2017. I took it to airfest last year towing my RV. The towing capacity for my truck is 17,100 pounds with a 68rfe tranny. I wanted a 3500 but with a 68rfe tranny the towing capacity was around the same but the only difference was paypoad around 1500 pounds more. Towing with a I6 cummins is so much better then a small block v8 gasser. I get 14 highway towing my set up for airfest.

    There's probably a button on it somewhere that I can push that will make it park itself. They should give a course on all the features it has and how to use them.
