How big a field do I need for an Omega Electric?

I'm considering getting an omega electric from NES and I'm wondering how big a field I need to land it. (Assuming I set it up with spoilerons.) I fly on a local field which can fit 2 full size soccer games end-to-end. (Luckily, the wind usually blows right down the long axis.) I fly all my other planes here and finding a bigger field would be a problem.

It shouldn't be a problem as long as the field is not lined with trees. I fly an Electron 400 (60", 22oz) from a landing area smaller than a football field with no problem. But the approach is clear. With an electric glider I just make sure I only go around if I know I have enough motor battery left.
