Hobby Lobby Alpha P-47 feedback

I am somewhat interested in the Alpha P-47 from Hobby Lobby. But I would like to hear some comments from you guys before ordering it.

First of all, how large does the field need to be? And how does it handle gusts and turbulent winds? Is it manouvrable at low speeds? And is it a fast or slow flyer? Does it need a long approach?

I will probably be flying this plane at my beach house, which has enough room for a slow flying park flyer, but I do not know how fast this plane is. There are some trees to the sides (the landing and take off area are rather narrow), and there is some turbulence due to the fact that it is sorounded by small hills.

Your help here will be much appreciated!
