Ok. I will have to get used to applying only the smallest amount; otherwise, you fly off the runway 😂

Thank you 🙏

No problem happy to help :)

What would be a good Vr speed once the tail lifts up? Thanks 😁

Hmm i would say around 50kts…

As the Decathlon expert, i shall intervene, the rotation speed should be no less than 60 kts, unless you are trying for a short takeoff, and best climb speed is 70kts. I strongly suggest adding 30% up elevator trim for the whole flight, it just makes it easier. Landing can be anywhere from 40-70kts, just gotta bee on your toes the whole flight anyway.
