Hey, so I tested it more, and I think the specific problem is that the hit box for the sling component is too big. Any type of rushed landing where the aircraft's attitude is nose high will damage the sling (despite the tail clearing the ground), and in turn, the whole aircraft. I have recordings of this happening on landings that are completely safe for other aircraft and the Taru's tail is not touching the ground, but the sling still gets damaged. If you land very slowly and soft, the sling doesn't get damaged because the speed is low enough to not damage any part of the aircraft (like bumping into a building at <5kmph). It makes flying the Taru in combat situations unnecessarily difficult. Once again, if there is a way to share the videos I have recorded, let me know and I will be more than happy to send them. Thanks again for your time.

I first noticed the problem on vidda, but I also experienced it on Tanoa. Also, I realized I was mistaken somewhat. The damage really happens when there is a sideways component to your lateral motion on touchdown (either left or right at about 5-10 kph). Sorry about that. Would me being able to make and submit a video of it be more helpful?
