When AI controlled Phiels land, they land it as if it were a tail dragger. They go for a slow speed flare and haul back on the stick and hold off the runway a long time to go too nose high. They end up landing on the ventral tail, and staying on it until the aircraft slows down enough to de-rotate onto the nose wheel. This technique is good for a tail dragger when you are trying to make a three pointer, but not okay for a trike. They should not hold off so long on the flare and settle on the mains, not three point the mains and ventral tail section!!!

Ok, it's a livable bug but still unnecessary. They should land it like they do the P-38, which they land perfectly. On the mains first, then the nose gear right afterward. Same way I was taught to land Piper or Cessna in flight instruction.
