I too was wondering about that as I intend to connect the video to the GoPro at some point. It seems plenty of people do fly this way with gimbaled cameras. You certainly can tell if you are pushing the right stick forward. My guess is you get used to knowing if you are flying crooked or not and this mostly would be to fight the wind I would think... thus being OK too.

As for motors. When I get mine I will be using Sunnysky V2216 800s, 9inch Graupners and 4s 3300 mah batts and I'll have the Spidex V2 frame. I'll report back when I see how that works. I'm thinking 10 inch Graupners might give more lift but I bought the 9 inch ones to make sure they were not in my shot using the Discovery.
