    Make sure your two Tx antennas are oriented correctly. Read the Manual. A lot of your questions will be answered there. Glad to have you on the Forum.

    Can anyone help?, I'm having issues with landing, well not the landing part it's the cutting the engine part, I keep ending up with it either shuffling backward or as just happened it turned over onto its back????? Now a bit nervous to land the bloody thing

    Hold the left stick all the way down until it lands. Or use the big Auto-Land button in the app. You're probably trying a CSC on the ground, which is a big no-no.

    It has landed at this point, I'm not trying to cut engines in mid flight lol, I make sure it's landed then release the sticks and then pull them down and in

    yeah, that's the problem. hold the left stick down until the props stop spinning. you're trying to CSC while it's on the ground.

    Being new to the Phantom, You likely need to read your owners manual a bit more.
    There are plenty of parameters and terminology to remember.
