Nice advice, WJ.
I like fast stuff, propjets and Q500, will it be a big deal to fly for me? Would it be a good idea to tow it up on a windy day and try to get used to it at my regular feild?
I don't think it will be hard for you to fly, but I think you'll find the landing is a lot like landing a Q500 with a ~8 inch pitch prop and NOT killing the motor.
Because the wingspan is pretty large, I never thought the Sammy seemed all that fast compared to smaller more nimble ships I flew at the time, but the speed was deceiving. It is smooth and silky and really has "legs". I haven't flown one in over 5 years, but I remember I could range out further from the edge of the hill with that plane than any other in my inventory at that time.
I'm not a big fan of winching/towing dedicated slopers. My home hill conditions are such that I always have a strong horizontal wind component in the LZ which is nothing like landing on a flat thermal field. If you want to try it, and have experience winching/towing other planes of similar weight and wing loading then it might be a good exercise for you.
