From my experience I've noted that I have to land with a slightly nose high pitch attitude before touching down - with or without flaps. I think they must have designed this plane with the main gear slightly forward of the CG and that's why it noses over so easily.
As the mains touch down with proper airspeed I've three pointed it without any problem also.
From my experience the airspeed and pitch attitude have to be nearly perfect each time or it'll end up on it's nose.

Good luck, It's a challenging bird to land consistently sometimes but a delight to fly.

I have changed my elevator throws so that in taxiing and landing mode there is the maximum amount of up elevator throw that I can get - as soon as I flick to flight mode or aerobatic mode the elevator throw drops back significantly. The huge up throw I find helps with noseovers, I also put some spacers underneath the retracts on the back so that the main gear angles forward a touch, with a bit of playing around the wheels still retract fine into the wells.

i use the short field landing technique:
after touchdown and first bounce kill the flaps and throttle, the tail comes right down.

For some reason I couldn't land this thing to save myself yesterday, so I put it on the bench and gave it some TLC. New APC 12x6 prop, fresh olive drab paint on the leading edge, tightened the retract struts, three-n-one oil on the wheel axles and gave all the screws/motor mounts a quick check.

Four batteries this afternoon (2x3s/3200, 2x3s/3700) with a steady 8-10 mph breeze straight down the runway and the landing gremlins were gone. I also returned the batteries to my previous ideal position....aft up against the raised foam where the BNF Rx is located. One notch of flaps on final and the Hurri was flying at walking speed over the numbers then landing on the mains. Sweet!
