rpm and flap settings: Graphs/Tables of Speeds?

Recommended Posts

 

Has anyone made a table or graph of horizontal vs vertical speeds at different rpm settings (and different flap settings) on a reasonable [ahem, standard] day?

for example, 3000rpm, 15 degrees of flaps:  70 knots speeds has a vertical speed of -300fpm, 60 knots of -100fpm, and so on.

This will depend a lot on how your prop is pitched.   Go up and open the throttle at a normal cruise altitude and see what you get.  I assume if Roger set you up its about 5600 rpm.   WF
