    -6 has best ANGLE of climb - debate resolved IMO

    So much to talk about.....bottom line the CT(LS) glides best at around 80 zero flaps. Takeoff 0 flaps and climb 0 flaps at 70-80 kts, ( very little advantage of 15 flaps takeoff portion of the climb) and ALWAYS assume the engine may quit. With 15 flaps and no engine you loose considerable altitude transitioning to best glide. Try it. I'm still alive from the addiction of flying for 60 years....
