    I purchased the litchi app and pressed the lift off button within the app but after my flight i couldn't find a button to land it so i had to switch to dji go app to land it.

    Can somebody show me a screenshot of the landing button please.

    You land it manually. Go to the P position and take control after it reaches the last waypoint. By the way, you can set the altitude at the last waypoint low so that taking control and landing is easy.

    Yes. Welcome Jack! The first thing you need to learn is manual take off and landing. Don't take off or land in sand, dirt or debris. Learn how to hand-catch.

    Just to add to this good post, always wear protective eyewear when hand catching. Always! I know most of us are guilty of not doing this but it's important.

    The most common "crash" in a phantom is a tip over (or in my case, a flip over) during landing. The auto land feature works very well but manual landing is much more precise and less likely to tip. It is a skill that must be mastered by any phantom pilot. If there is any wind or you have an uneven or thick grassy surface, hand catch it. Considered investing in polar pro landing gear (google it or check amazon), it adds a great deal of stability to your aircraft to prevent tip-overs. Even with that gear I still managed to tip mine over during wind and on a grassy unlevel surface. Hand catch in that case.

    Last but absolutely not least, once you have landed manually and go to stop the motors, always use left stick down for 3 seconds, and never a CSC (combination stick command, sticks down and toward each other). A CSC after landing can cause a tipover. Left stick down is the safe and correct method.

    Youtube has a good amount of hand catching videos where you can learn the skill from once you have mastered normal landing such as this:
