"the motors will cut out is when you have an angle of greater than 60deg for one second"
Don't believe it!
I had a strange thing happen to my hexa on 2 occasions and it flipped completely upside down, went FULL throttle for OVER 1sec and the motors did NOT shut off. Instead they cut holes in the dirt and mangled the props before I could get it shut down.
So for me they never shut off until I killed them. So beware.

And the answer:
"if the gps work on the ground is normal , there will be have big than 5 sats when the AP start to work .
if the gps singal is not well , and the sats is less than 5 , you need switch to manual to back landing .
i want to tell you why about the motor is shut when the aircraft in the back landing .
if your aircraft Tilt angle is big than 60 Degree for one second , the ap will be shut the motors .
why the aircraft tilt for this too much defree ?
you need check the value of Vibration and shaking data"
So, basically he is saying that you cannot do a backlanding if you have less than 5 satellites and if you have less you need to switch to Manual mode.
He is also saying that the only time the motors will cut out is when you have an angle of greater than 60deg for one second, which I see as a safety feature anyway. Can you imagine a hexa coming at you at speed with motors on full throttle. I prefer the motors to cut out.
