    Help me out pls. I will note typical landing scenario that I'd love to improve on

    I prefer landing on terra ferma instead of catching when flying alone, I steer Betsy over landing pad. Descend and land. Props slow down substantially once craft lands. Now hitting the kill switch causes uav to topple over as command isn't interpreted immediately, I'm telling uav to "descend while spinning counterclockwise. And the other stick command gets read as "reverse towards the right. This faint pause between motor shut down causes uav to topple over disgracefully. With props brushing against landing pad surfac, not a cool landing. Any tips to improve this? Thks!

    After landing, hold the left stick down for 3 seconds to shut down the motors.

    Do not use csc to shut down your motors after landing. Use left stick down and hold it down for 3 or 4 seconds. This way will prevent your bird from toppling over.

    Nothing like a bunch of bruises on your UAV from repeated botched landings :(
    This saves the day,​
