When im very heavy i go TOGA/ full thrust to prevent an overrun and/or stall after takeoff

5 degrees.

Always remember that you should aim for 92-96% N1 during takeoff. In the 787, that is normally around 80% throttle. Always adjust with terrain, weight, etc.

I usually use 80% trust when taking off in the 787

96 is a bit too much. That’s the TOGA setting. Must be really heavy to use that.

Try 15 degrees when you’re in a hot and high take off condition.

Rotation speeds (V1 etc.) are usually dependent on weight and engine power, however other factors such as weather and terrain may influence takeoff/landing speeds.

Just had a look at this… its brilliant but doesn’t cover most aircraft :/

Be careful with those power settings, many are inaccurate

Usually I would use a thrust of about 80%, and make sure my flaps are set to a medium setting and that my trim is set to 15 or 20.

Infinite flight YouTube tutorials may also provide some valuable information.
