I have about the same experience back ground as you. If you respect the airplane, you'll have fun!!

I am still in the airplane shopping stage and was thinking of a Q2, how ever
only have about 30 hours of Champ time and 300 hours total time. Wondering if
that is an ok plane or if I need to get some more experience before I hop into a Q2.
