Nice work, some comments:

It might make more sense to put the altitude on the vertical axis. A minor thing, I know, but give it a shot.

This data is interesting, but what would be more valuable to vpilots is not maximum speed: It is acceleration from a given speed to another at a given GW.

So, you can start at say M0.8 (or 0.5 to be more complete, or specific IAS) and accelerate to M2.2, record everything inbetween. Pick 3 altitudes per payload, more is a serious chore.
