This varies depending on the design of the airplane, the weight of the airplane, and the weather conditions encountered during the takeoff, but is typically from 9 - 20 degrees nose up for jets.

Do large planes need to take off at smaller or greater degree then the smaller planes?

It all depends on how much power is in the engines that can enable an airplane to take off at a steeper or shallower angle. Airplanes used for air shows and fighter jets are able to take off at a steep angle. Bush planes can also take off at a steep angle. A heavily loaded Air Bus, on the other hand, needs more clearance to be able to take to the air and thus may take off at a more shallower angle than a typical CF-18 Hornet would!

What is an airplane flap?

An airplane flap extends the wing area during take-off and landing, to give extra lift at low speed. This allows the airplane to take-off and land at reasonably low speeds (around 150mph for most jet airliners).

What is Landspeed of a airplane at take off?

This varies greatly from airplane to airplane, as well as according to ground wind conditions. Keep in mind that landspeed does not matter to an airplane nearly as much as AIRspeed. For example, your typical 4-seater single engine airplane takes off at around 60mph airspeed. Given a 20mph headwind, this aircraft could take off at 40mph GROUND speed. If you are interested in how fast the ground is wizzing by when youre looking out the window of the airliner. Most airliners take off at around 150 to 180 mph AIRspeed.
