mine is 10.8Kg so very close to yours, it flies like a fast pattern ship.
very stable, I think at this wight give it a bit of ground speed before you pull the stick (that is what I do) so you get a smooth & scale like takeoff.
the landing speed is not high, I mixed a bit of up trim with the flaps, it doesn't pick a lot of speed if the nose dropped a bit on the landing.
the stall speed is quit low.
I fly it just like flying a pattern ship even I do the basic routine of the IMAC with & it dose it perfectly.
good luck with your maiden.
