Great instructable! My suggestion is to put flaps to 2° and put trim up 4 notches
As far as i can tell, you dont have any flaws in your takeoff BUT 2. for a runway this long you dont need your flaps. the plane takes off just fine without them considering the CONSIDERABLE OVERPOWER it has, and two, NEVER EVER turn off Flight Director if you are going to use your Autopilot. That is what links very many systems together. without it, the plane will freak out and if your using FSPASSENGERS will give you a lot of loss in points.

Thank you for those points! About the flaps, I was just following the instructions... The amount of flaps you would need would be variable. Again, thanks!
