The speed it requires plus its size makes it a plane you have to pay close attention to and stay ahead of.
Yes, I agree with you to an extent. But watch the factory video again. It does fly slowly, and quite nicely. Try and land it too fast and you will bounce back into the air. It is a rather slender and sleek airframe. Thus it is "slippery" and retains energy well. I have watched my friend land his dozens of times now and it has yet to drop a wing or bite him. It will fly slowly with no surprises.
