About 100 miles upwind when it happened and we noticed nothing here.

They are TBS motors and it flew great at 5.25 lbs. (8400mA).

I'm flying with the GoPro on this latest rebuild. Not seeing the attitude of the quad when flying FPV should not be an issue at all IMO. Flight is gyro controlled with auto-leveling and the quad does exactly what stick inputs tell it to do. I see no need for visual confirmation of attitude.

There is another option besides the USB for video out.
