Bad luck or..?
in seven flight's I've cracked 4 white/black mini Gunther props, one large black Gunther-prop and 2 "pico-stick"-props..Just bad luck or... Ain't the props "unbreakable"
The arplanes I've used 'em on is something called HyperCub (an Old DPR rubber powered converted into electric model) and a "PizzaBox-aircraft"

I lose the Gunthers on a regular basis when they spin of the shaft of the Firefly, but I've never broken one. Perhaps you should shut the power off before you make contact...

Yes, I was going to say what Mike did - maybe you should throttle off before you land, or, maybe your landing gear isn't tall enough or juuuuust baaaarely is? That's my best guess. If so, and nothing can be changed, I guess I'd cut throttle a while before landing, and if the prop stops spinning in a vertical position, then do a short burst of throttle, and see where the prop stops again. Repeat until it ends up horizontal, or close.
This is ridiculous, and for me, would kill the fun of flying, but just a thought.
