Looks like airspeed dropped you into a stall. No auto-throttle on the dash so you have to be mindful of it. I tend to use MCR to ensure it doesn't lose speed on climbout. Not to worry, since it's technically a prop, I can't penalise you for stalling :)

Thx for response , i know no auto throttle no Autoland . But this came out off nowhere . vertical speed 2000 speed 180 on manual departing. Engaging the AP changed everything. But always difficult depart and land in a groupflight in the middel of Boeings and Airbusses.???? Huge workload

MCL is Max Climb Power. There are 2 buttons between the FMS' labelled MCL and MCR (Max Cruise Power) which are like semi auto-throttles. They should keep the engine power at optimal for each if you have the correct prop setting. Just make sure your condition levers are set to 900 for climb and 850 for cruise before you hit the buttons.
