I haven't run that set of numbers, but I'll try to do that tonight after dinner. That calc isn't in my spreadsheet, but I can run it manually from Raymer.The DA-11 is physically too small for most pilots. Larger is probably necessary. Also, what do your numbers say about takeoff and landing distance on this level of power? Is 1200 feet still do-able?
What airport are you flying from that's genuinely only 1200' in length? Even Skylark's shortest dirt runway is 2,250'. I know your home field. Its shortest runway is well over 3,500' long. Even Mountain Valley, a popular destination for both of us, is 4,890', albeit at 4,220'MSL.
