Bad luck or..?

The arplanes I've used 'em on is something called HyperCub (an Old DPR rubber powered converted into electric model) and a "PizzaBox-aircraft"

The only way I'm able to break the gunthers, is nose-in at full speed into concrete!

How do you land?

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.
