Quid - In a light twin you don't want to be at Vx either (since you woudn't care about the angle). You would be at Vy as you would like to get away as fast as possible. When you have reached safe altitude you would accelerate to what ever might be convinient eg. cruise climb.

Having flown a DC-10 simulator, I was taught that you would like to be at V2 - V2+15 if you lose an engine (around 175 kts if I remember correctly a MTOM) untill clear of obstacles and then accelerate to BROC-speed or 250.

If you lose an engine on the ground roll after V1 wouldn't you climb at V2. If you accelerate to 210 kts you can't be sure you clear the obstacles - no?
