There are a few different ways to land .

1- > set the attitude to H-Level , and yaw the spacecraft so the main engines (rear) points towards the relative velocity. As you reduce the velocity , you need to increase the hover engines,  once that the relative velocity is small enought ,you can simply descend using the hover engines. Dont' forget to extend the landing gear ! 

We are getting ready a new video-tutorial section in youtube . We ll create a tutorial about how to land the orion on the moon . 

Thanks !
