I never sailed a FlyingScot but there are quite a few at our club up on the Hudson River and they seem to perform quite well on the water (with some wind) like my 19' Lightning. I think and hope that you will enjoy it.
Your boat (or should I say 'sailing dinghy'?) sounds newer than my Lightning so you probably have less maintenance to do. Focus on the essentials when it comes to maintenance; the trailer, hull scratches, center board, running rigging and rudder (I am assuming that the sails and battens are ok).
Are you planning to 'dry sail' her? If so, a new cover or more tarps may just do the trick for now.
Is there a spinnaker and pole, vang and all the stuff a racing boat thinks it needs to have or do you just plan on doing some relaxed sailing?
Congrats and good luck.
