Wheel or wheels underground

Sometimes when I land, 1 or more wheels go underground. Is this happening to anybody else?

It actually happens pretty often. I think it’s a system that tells you that you landed too hard.

Don’t slam too hard onto runway and/or don’t go nosewheel first into ground to ground :)

Always make sure to flare at the right time to ensure a smooth landing. For me I flare at 20ft. When you perform a good flare no wheels should go underground.

Why he can’t land Laurens?

Cause what he described only happens when you land much too hard.
