Update:
It took some time to update my control software to work properly with NatNet, but it does now appear to work properly. Once the NatNet stream is enabled, a very steady level of outgoing data can be observed in Task Manager. So far I have only tested with two robots enabled, but the level is the same with either one or two. I have not yet done "long term" tests (i.e., nothing more than a couple of minutes) but NatNet seems to be the answer.

Considering that using the NatNet stream is my solution, I reverted to TrackingTools 2.4.0b1 and observed that the frame rate with TrackingTools seems to be more stable (i.e., 100fps) compared to Motive, which varies from 70-90 fps even though the camera rate stays steady at 100fps. The displayed process time is much, much faster in Motive than TT, so why the decreased stream rate?

That is an interesting problem with Motive 1.0.2. I can't say why you're seeing that. We just posted Motive 1.5 Beta 2 today to our web site. If it's not too much of an inconvenience, please give it a try as well. There were a number of specific fixes to streaming and NatNet.
