A few times I've been in situations where it would have been helpful for Karma to shut off prior to officially landing. One of which was when Karma crashed and the propellors kept spinning until they all broke off and I was able to manually shut off on the body of the drone. Is there any emergency shut off I can do from the controller in the case of a crash or other similar situations?
 
By holding the power and land button you can force the motors to stop.

Wish i had known that earlier. 15 stitches on my left hand trying to stop the karma destroying itself!

Take it that shut down isnt in the official manual?

It's actually on page 23 of the manual.

"Note: In an emergency, you can stop the motors immediately by pressing and holding the Start/Stop button and Land button simultaneously for 5 seconds."

Sorry to hear about your hand. 15 stitches is a lot. I hope you heal up well.

Yes. It is the Start/Stop and Land buttons simultaneously pressed to stop motors, not the Power and land button.
