Replied by Larry Snyder on topic Rate of climb
I have a C-85 with the O-200 crankshaft STC and I fly from an airport at about 800 feet MSL with a 4500 foot paved runway. At full gross (1260) I’m in the air about 1000 feet down the runway. At the end of 4500 feet I’m well over 300 AGL. Climb rate is 400-500 fpm. That’s in moderate temperatures (<80). Prop is a 71-49.

What should the ground roll rate (distance) and rate of climb be on a 85 horse 1946 Ercoupe at full gross with a 48 pitch prop coming off of a field with an elevation of 800 feet and a 2000 foot hard surface runway on a no wind 80 degree day.
