It really depends on density altitude, fuel load, and cockpit load. According to my records, and it's pretty close to what I have actually experienced:
Take off roll (gross weight) 960 ft
TO over 50 ft obstacle 1600 ft
Best rate of climb Vx 73mph
Best angle of climb Vy 64mph
Stall power on 59 mph ias
Stall power off 54 mph ias
Glide ratio 6:1
Best Glide 80 mph ias
If you slow down, it sinks like an anvil.

Disclaimer!! This is what my placard says and my experience says it's pretty close.

i am interested in what any M10 owners believe or have determined what is their best glide speed and ratio are. I am attempting to put in an accurate performance profile in ForeFlight.

Thanks!
