You can get nx4008s from hobbyking or getfpv.com
I'm not sure how well dt750s work bc I've never used them but I'm sure someone else will be able to comment on those motors.

I'm in the process of editing the fpv flight video. It should be up by Sunday.

Amazing!

Do you power your onboard FPV equipment with a separate battery?

Yah, you're right that was some crazy flying, especially when the first brown out occurred on top of the trees. I was scared for you. I'm flabbergasted how you were able to recover from it remarkably or else it would have been an arduous search and rescue.

You're tempting me with this FPV Dream Machine airframe... Must resist the force.
