N1322K and N456DX have the same image. Consider fixing that?

Climb speed 70-80 knts

Rotation speed 55-60 knts

Trim is usually around 15% and very light back pressure to ease off and keep it in ground effect until 75 knts then pitch to hold at 80 and if needed 70.

I love the 172, it doesn’t need any flaps for takeoff. I use 0 flaps and she just lifts off like a bird. (Irl FYI)

Also, I’m not a fan of high wing aircrafts. I prefer my little PA28 Cherokee 180
