Edit:

Like I said, the landing functionality is handled by the SDK

Thanks to the AR.Drone 2.0 onboard sensors take-off, hovering, trimming and landing are now completely automatic and all manoeuvres are completely assisted.

That's from page 16, section 2.6 of the documentation for the SDK (that's a link to a ZIP of the SDK, with the documentation in it).
