Mobius 1080 Camera
« on: November 03, 2013, 04:30:51 PM »
After doing some reviews on mini cameras, so far this one here leads the pack for the price. The Mobius 1080 mini camera can be set up through the camera or through a GUI from the PC. It's small enough where weight is not a factor compared to a GOPRO, but then again the video quality just might not be the same anyway.

Here's the lowdown

Here's a video review:


And the manual:

What I do know is that there are only a few select places to purchase a true Mobius camera, one of them is MassiveRC.com. Be careful because there are places that might say they are true Mobius, but they are just Chinese clones, so buyer beware.

I think this camera is definitely going on my bucket list for the future.

Looks pretty interesting Ed would love to see it in action if you get one looks like a bit better than a #18 Key chain cam, much bigger lens on it.  :t2030:  Duane

Mobius does make a # 18 keycam for half the cost. But it only gets 720dp on the video quality. It is a good camera as well. but the 1080 just gives it that extra in the quality department. The more you want the more you pay I guess.  :scratching_chin1:

That link that I posted was for a legit seller for the Mobius, There are knockoff out there, But from the info I got, its one of the best ones out there here in the US.

I'm jealous, i'll have to wait until Santa stops by.  :t2416:


From all the reports, I think you'll be happy with that one.
That was fast :b0703: :b0703: :b0703: :b0703:

No FPV, at least I do not think so. I use a different camera for my FPV quad.

This is what i'm running on the FPV quad

The remod XL will only be for capturing video on a lighter LOS platform.

To Sky:
There are those who think that using the same camera for FPV and videography is not such a good idea.
Your video camera is doing multiple duty (video at 1080, snap shot bursts, etc). Asking it to also be your eye in the sky might just be asking for trouble if it should decide to go on the fritz or lose power.

Lots of reasons why this wouldn't happen, but it only takes one for it to happen. Like Ice, I prefer to keep mine separate.

Thanks for the explanation Randy, Ok two separate cameras, definitely a 1080p also.
