Any of you guys flying see shortening of liftoff, or just on landing?

I see it on both.  I only use one click of flaps on both.  I have tried without just the one click and see a longer take-off and landing roll.  Off the ground pretty quick anyway so really don't use more than that.

That's cool, any idea how much difference in feet? It would be interesting to see what more clicks do too...

Sorry Dave, not sure of the footage.  I will have to do some tests.  No flaps, one click, two clicks and three clicks.  Both on take-offs and then landings.  
Next time I go up just to go up and play that is what I will do.
