has any one else had experience with this kind of contract
Probably most of us have been down this track in our early years of developing. As has been suggested be as specific as possible, I would be surprised if you even had a spec document probably more likely a requirements statement and worked from there.

In my later years I would take the requirements meeting and maybe 2 others. I would then give them and estimate to write the specification.

Once you have written the spec you should have reduced the potential scope creep. Note, you will never eliminate it! So now you should be able to put an estimate on the development costs (you will get it wrong so go high). Then note that additional requirements will mean additional funding.

Try and identify milestones where you can get paid and how much of the pot you can get at each milestone. This should help you get a reasonable return for your time.

Never forget your reputation is worth more than money so leaving the client satisfied is very important as you need references more than pots of money.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
