It is a very rudder dependent airplane and it will make you use your feet.  If your used to flying a spam can you will sling the ball all over the place the first hour or two then you will get it figured out.  Lead turns with the rudder going both in and out of the turns.  If you push the stick over you better be pushing same rudder.  Other than that these are very docile planes.

My biggest tip is "Happy Feet". As you flare on touchdown get your feet pumping about 1/4" so they are not planted, and they can respond instantly to any yaw control needs. Made a big difference in my landing roll outs.
