Does anybody know what this weird sounding glitch would be during flight?

Sounds like a motor is cutting out you also really got that way to close to those people walking check you gain and check all your connections and settings on the controller

It sounds like short burst of full throttle on one or more motors.

checked all connectors and props. nothing loose. I have not adjusted the gains in the last 20 or so flights and they have not moved.

I agree with kapkuk, it sounds like a throttle up on one motor but why I dont know.

I will try an esc reset and see how that goes.

You can see it yawed left almost out of control as this problem developed.
