    You stated your conclusion is universally true, it's your responsibility to provide evidence. I provided evidence, in the form of an...

    Where is your data?

  3. dmspilot replied to the thread Cessna's recommendation on flaps.

    How do you know it isn't? Thrust available is higher at slower speeds. The climb angle will be steeper with flaps if the drag added...

    If the Delta been Tr and Ta is higher at the flaps 20 climb speed it will not be universally stepper with the flaps up even at the...

  5. dmspilot replied to the thread Cessna's recommendation on flaps.

    That is not universally true. Climb angle is a function of thrust available minus thrust required. In propeller driven aircraft,...

    If flaps "always decrease the climb performance" (Ryan F) why would they be specify flaps be used to clear any height of obstacle?

  7. dmspilot replied to the thread Cessna's recommendation on flaps.

    Why do some aircraft specify flaps to clear an obstacle after takeoff? Why would they recommend something that, as you put it, would...

    Maybe I was incorrect, and that you don't understand the topic after all.

  9. dmspilot replied to the thread Cessna's recommendation on flaps.

    Not what I'm referring to. The thread is about takeoff performance, not steady-state climb performance.

  10. dmspilot replied to the thread Cessna's recommendation on flaps.

    You already understand the topic, or at least I'll assume that you do. So of course it is clear to you. Those who don't understand the...

  11. dmspilot liked Kritchlow's post in the thread Cessna's recommendation on flaps.

    I think what he’s saying is one is shorter, one is longer. You need to tally up the two to see which is better for the individual...

    Your statement is ambiguous, can be misinterpreted, and is not germane to the discussion on takeoff and obstacle climb performance.

  13. dmspilot liked asicer's post in the thread Cessna's recommendation on flaps.

    Oh by the way, the R172K (aka the "XP") also has the 10deg flap recommendation in the abbreviated section. The amplified section is...

  14. dmspilot replied to the thread Cessna's recommendation on flaps.

    The climb performance we're talking about is the distance measured from the start of the takeoff point to fifty feet AGL. Flaps do not...
