I had severe problems trying to land mine until i managed to get the CROW braking set-up properly. The thing would just keep on going and quite often i needed multiple attempts.
I can now land it within 10 metres of me about 4 out of 5 times with 50 degree flaps and 30 on the ailerons when using CROW.
I still find that it needs aggressive down elevator before flaring though, which is a bit unnerving until you get used to it, it does feel like you are flying at
