Re: V Speeds

I measured my Q200 at 900lb.
Vs 67 mph
Vx 85 mph
Vy 120 mph
Vne 230 mphI did find that with the engine at full power the plane would lift off around 60 mph (below stall speed) I think due to the additional airflow over the wing at full power. Due to that I would always lift off and stay in ground effect until 100 mph, then climb out. I would fly final with 2 170 lb people at 90 mph and single place at 85 mph. If you want to land in 1600 feet.

Close? And yes I understand that I need to test these and run numbers and graphs later but for now I am trying to get conservative ballpark numbers.

Love building planes almost as much as flying. Latest completed build is "Loki", a Chinook Plus 2 bush plane.
