Perfect throttle usage for Dash-8 during takeoff?

Well in real life the pilot sets he throttle to TOGA or FLEX settings for takeoff if the plane has that option. And in small GA prop planes like I fly you use full throttle for takeoff and climb. Dash 8 is a little different though.

this here will explain what happens when something is broken in your engine and you full throttle: link description here

90%-95% Is what I would use.

Yeah for jets full throttle isn’t normal and can cause damage. Props work differently. Still Dash 8 isn’t made for full throttle usage on a normal basis. You’re correct though.
