787-10 take off issue

I love the 787, and normally fly the -9. I tried out the -10 today at EDDL, 90%N1 5 flaps and rotate at 160 as high as possible without tailstriking, yet I didn’t lift up (I am not overweight) until ~220! I lifted up at the very end of the runway and even then wasn’t ascending effectively until pushing the nose to 10 degrees? Am I doing something wrong?

The problem is the flaps. You need to have them at 15 degrees

Trim may be handy as well…

Flaps 5? Put them on 15.

I’m sure you set the flaps too low. Flaps 15 should be the feasible one

Not enough flaps at all.

Flaps are too low, put em to 15 and you’ll takeoff just fine :)

Skip to about :40 and that’s basically what happens when you don’t use enough/any flaps. https://youtu.be/Kle80KB_s3I

Use 5" after you have gained speed and in the air.

Flaps should be at 15. It’s one of the biggest widebodies…

Welp. That was unanimous.

The throttle is correct but if you start pulling up it is t strong enough to keep on increasing so you need to go up very slowly (low vs)

Make sure weight is not above MTOW

Its below MLW, it was just flaps

Do following :

  • % N1
  • 15° flaps
  • 30% to 40% trim rate
  • Stay below MTOW

Then the aircraft basically lift itself in the air.

5%flaps too small for 160 ratate speed.
5% flaps you should rotate at around 180

Check the weight balance. It might be that your aircraft is too heavy at the front and therefore i would suggest having more weight rearwards. The flaps is important too, have them at 15.
