I don't have the Overland A380 but 1800 FPM is not that slow a rate of climb for a commercial jet at altitude. Rate of climb has to decrease as you climb. If you are too heavy, you may not be able to even reach your cruise altitude. Most big jets are only climbing at less than 500 FPM when climbing to there max. altitude at heavy weights. Reduce your weight and ensure that you are not exceeding the max. takeoff weight.

P.S. Flaps should be completely retracted as speed builds. This is normally before 2,000 feet AGL.
