    Hey everyone, I've been flying for quit a while and have been flying a lot in Atti mode, just to get a better feel and in case I lose GPS. My question is that when I landed in Atti mode it wants to tip side to side and was unstable when I tried to kill the motors after I had landed it. Has anyone done this and will the motors not shut down even though I had the control sticks pulled down and in (CSC) I ended up switching to P-GPS to shut them down. Just curious?

    After you land, hold the left stick down for 3-5 seconds to turn off the motors. CSC is known to cause tip-overs.

    I would normally say hand catch but maybe not so easy in ATTI

    Something that everyone does before flying their Phantom and much discussed in forums.
    The manual even mentions it ...

    I did land a few times in atti mode, just for learning purposes also. But I discovered that you have to land the very last part a little bit more firmly in order to avoid tip-overs. CSC I never perform, its to unthrusty and takes to much time. On my PV2+ CSC worked perfectly.
    P-Atti is also a good alternative. I do a lot of low level practice (around 50 cm's) in my backyard and because of the house and trees I cannot fly in GPS mode.
