I can't takeoff in the C172

I keep stalling. I use 10° flaps. I am below MTOW.

Make sure when you start the flight hold it at a comfortable position that will work, then make sure to stay on the runway until at least 70knts.

But i keep stalling after that

What is your vs when you take off?

Don’t have a pitch greater than 5°, you’re not in an airliner. The C172 doesn’t accelerate a lot when climbing, so probably around 2.5° pitch will be the best. (At least in my case)
And I would opt for a 100% throttle until you have your cruise speed.

If you can share a replay with us showing the problem we are in a better position to figure out what is wrong and what you can do to fix it.

It’s working!

Yes and once you get to like 80kt you can increase your rate of climb

Rotate speed is around 55 kts and your climb speed is about 75 kts. In the 172 you don’t go by pitch so much as speed, stay around 75 kts and you should be fine!

What helps me is climbing at 500fpm or 600fpm with throttle and mixture set to 100%. It’s really a great aircraft!
