3: Take off & Climb
Holding with brakes, set the take off power of 93% RPM.
Release brakes whenever the RPM is under control.
When you clicked on the Speed Reference chart, the bugs on the air speed gauge will have moved automatically to mark these important speeds:-
VR - 121 kt
V2 - 141 kt
Climb Speed - 160 kt
Flaps up safety - 201 kt

When the speed reaches 121 knots pull back the stick & lift off.

On passing V2 (141 kt) select gear up & increase pitch to around 12 degrees on the Attitude Indicator.

At this configuration, 12 degrees pitch should settle you nicely onto the climb speed of 160 kt.

Climb steadily keeping at 93% RPM.

As you go past 2000 ft start bringing the nose down by gently pushing forward on the stick.  We are aiming for 2500ft.
Allow the speed to build, but adjust the RPM to around 90% as the climb rate reduces.

When the speed goes over 190 kt, select flaps up & gently reduce power as the flaps are raised.
We are aiming for a power setting of around 79% RPM when the flaps are up.  This will give between 200 & 210 kt.

Adjust trim so that no pressure is needed on the stick to fly level.

Once trimmed in level flight at 2500 ft, between 200 & 210 kt, click the auto pilot toggle switch.
Turn on the auto pilot (AP-1 switch) & Altitude Hold (ALT switch).
You would normally have both Yaw dampers switched on as well on the real thing, but it is not as important on the model.
