    In putting together the marquartcharger.org site, I pulled from numerous sources to put together the specs page. The result is not exactly rigorous, but gives a general idea.

    Charger owners, what V speeds do you work with? I'm interested in the following:

    Stall speed (Vs)
    Rotation speed (Vr)
    Best angle of climb (Vx)
    Best rate of climb (Vy)
    Best glide (Vg)
    Cruise speeds
    Max power level speed (Vh)
    Do not exceed (Vne)

    I'm sure only the most careful builders will have documented all of these, but I'm curious what's out there, including rule-of-thumb speeds you might use, whether they were tested with your plane or not.

    Hey Ian, "rotation speed" doesn't apply to these airplanes. Hell even the VAF guys don't bother with it. :D

    don't be so sure...… I bet on the flip over, I mean, nose wheel RV's they have their fancy computers to call out V1, Rotate, into their headsets...……...
