Takeoff data

Wow.......

Due to poor runway conditions and pilot skills, I ended up with fixed gear.

Takeoffs are now absolutely gorgeous.

Mains are 2 inches taller and Nose is about 3 inches taller.

For those that were discussing the nose angle of the plane during takeoff, that is definitely a flaw that causes this thing to jump erratically into the air.

I guess low pressure at the inlets may be holding it down also, because raising the entire plane improved upon the earlier version of just raising the nose.

Not much you can do if keeping the retracts, tho......
