Use nylon bolts.

When I started flying the MUS, it was definitely a little over my head. With practice you'll be able to land it like a slowstick. You can't force landings, you have to set them up, by coming in on a long approach and at a slow rate of decent. I had a hard time believing that it would fly slow, but it really does. Landing in as towards a slight breeze helps. If you radio is capable, flaps will slow it down even further. Just don't go to heavy on the flaps, maybe 20 or 30%, and mix in some up elevator to keep it level, maybe 10-12%. I'm still flying it on a park 450, and it is far and away the most enjoyable plane to fly out of the 12 or so that we have. I have a park 480 ready to go in sometime soon.

I've stripped off the gear a half dozen times or so with no ill effects, most recently coming out of a high speed loop too close to the ground. Its a tough plane and a fantastic flyer.
