Motocalc reckons you'll need 5s2p and a few more KV to make it come alive (4020-12 swinging the same APC 13x8). That'll make it pretty heavy, but I don't think unmanageably so... the flaps are pretty effective at slowing it down, so landings won't be that scary.

Oh, we were flying off very short grass (not quite cricket pitch, but getting there). No problem with the pants on, could probably handle quite a lot more. Also, our strip is pretty bumpy, no problem at all. The park in Sam's photos has much longer but flatter grass.

No photos... I was pretty busy out there, and you couldn't imagine a less photogenic day... dark overcast.
