    Surprisingly good quality video from such a cheap camera.

    Can this be connected to a video TX to support fpv? It would be great to hook this up to a fatshark tx

    The only input/output it has is a usb port.

    Here is a video I just made using it to record my fpv flight with my skysurfer plane

    I use a Möbius when I want a light setup. No waterproof case or fancy gimbal for the gopro here. Cheap and cheerful 1080p at 30 fps. Does a pretty good job for 70 grams, with the mount and foam vibration pad, and a fifth of the price! I don't even care if it gets wet. It is cheap tech.

    As a side note. My video out cable is all connected to my mobius and vTx. I had to get a little creative with duct tape to secure the cable so it didn't pop out during flight. Other than that, seems to work great. At least it's an affordable alternative to a GoPro and has decent recording capabilities too.

    How does it compare to the GoPro for fpv? I'm using my GoPro 3 Black for fpv --very sharp, clear image, pretty good results, too, when flying into the sun. I'd prefer to use a Mobius, however, if the fpv quality was close to the GoPro's.

    thanks!
