When it takes 2+ minutes to launch a Nats flight group, it's because the pilots delay more than the the launch master. They are supposed to be ready when told to launch, not stand there, look around, ask their timer if ready and then step on the pedal as most do.

The only time I recall an exceedingly long time to launch was a NOS round in high winds ... by the time one person finished tapping his Sailaire to the top, the first launched was landing.
