Regarding the takeoff flaps of 787-10

    5% isn't a setting, it's Flap 5, which is roughly 5° with 30° max... In percent that would be 16.67%...

    What exactly are you doing? When you are starting on the runway the flaps are already set for takeoff, matching the performance entered in the CDU. Do you start cold and dark and then extend flaps to 5 before takeoff, or are you starting on the runway, then move the flaps to 5 and then takeoff and can't retract them?

    Do you have the assistance for flaps on or off?

    I want to take off with flaps 5, but it's difficult to lift the nose
