    Have just downloaded trial FCPX in order to speed up the importing of HD clips onto my Macbook Air - works a treat!

    However I now need to know how I can instantly playback the video clip full screen size and at the same time see the timer, as well as FF, PLAY, PAUSE, STOP and BACK controls so I can easily and quickly play certain parts.

    You can't...

    FCPX will allow you to playback clips full screen, but you will not be able to see any kind of timer as far as I know. Simply click on the clip and you will see it in the preview window. To the bottom right of that window click on the dual arrows and it will go full screen. Just use the space bar to play and stop and your JKL keys to reverse-stop/play-fast forward.
