Welcome to the forums, Ollie.

There are about a dozen reasons for dropped frames, from not having a fast enough hard-drive setup to render preferences to whether or not you're fully rendering sequences, the amount of timeline streams...etc.

My suggestion is to use the "search" feature here on the forum for "dropping frames in Final Cut" and read the dozens of posts of what causes it and how to avoid it. You'll find the answers faster that way than having one of us recycle old info again.
