POH attached ( here ), It does not say with or without Flaps?
If 15 degrees of flaps are used as recommended it makes an enormous difference to the Take off distance, Can normally lift off two up between 120 and 180 yards depending on the strength of the wind , in a good wind one up with Flaps down it is nearer 100 Yards! The Low time Engine and the New VP prop certainly make a real difference to the performance generally
