I've been flying a P3 pro for awhile but took a break over the rainy season, and now for some reason, when I land (smoothly) and I push sticks down and inward together, the drone tips over and thrashes around before it shuts down. Am I forgetting something? I land it, it's still spinning props, I push both sticks to the bottom and in toward each other, and it tips and is very unhappy... Sticks around the 4: O'Clock and 8 O'clock to shut down, right?

throttle stick on the down position keep it there, and the motors will turn,  If you want to practice,  put your phantom  on the dinner table without the props. turn it on , let the motors spin. and then if you want them to turn off, putsch the throttle  stick down all the way and keep it there, and motors will turn off

yeah dont push the sticks inward that will flip it. Just hold the left stick down for 3 seconds and it will shut motors off.

You made the same mistake I did. My first couple time flying I landed no problem then got my wires crossed and used both sticks and flipped in on the top. Left stick down only to land and stop. I wrote it on my controller. Hahaha my dummies guide.

You should not use the CSC procedure to shut down on the ground.  It causes the motors to surge as you make your way to the shutdown position & has always been prone to causing tipovers.  Instead just hold the throttle fully down & after a second or two the motors will stop.  This will prevent the chance of a tipover.

You have many responses and all are the same, so I won't offer anything except these are lessons most of us have had to also learn at some point. So, don't beat yourself up! You are not alone here. I bet you won't forget it from now on...funny how that works isn't it.
