Throw the yoyo at an angle towards the tip of your th index. Outside of that, tilting your throwhand  like Mr.yoyothrower does in his video (down at an angle, I think) helps to spread the strings.

For me, pushing slightly out and down with your TH index, like I described earlier, also helps spread the strings, and positions the yoyo onto the back segment.

I find magic drop is more about your NTH because your throw hand shouldn't really move. You kind of have to flick your NTH in an angle based on which string you want to hit.

That being said, I'm convinced the only thing that will make this trick work is repetition. I've been working on Magic Drop for over 2 weeks. Some nights I've spent 1-2 hours just doing that trick alone. I can get it just about every time now, but my advice is put on a movie and just keep doing it over and over. Brandon Vu probably has the best tutorial on it.

Wow, I couldn't get anywhere close to hitting it with what Brandon said to do with your TH! Maybe it's better in the long run? I may mess around with it some more, but I've gotten pretty consistent with the way I've been doing it.

Myk,

How are you doing the trick of you don't mind me asking? Are you doing thumb up and finger forward (i.e. the pistol position)?
