Ok well i was conflicted I researched Mobius then found more expensive action cams then salivated then came back down to earth. I purchased the Mobius. The way i see it there is tons of web support and videos. Lots of references to rc and mobius so it was a no brainer. Also im gonna use it in my car. I purchased the car kit. The way i see it there is lots of creative driving out there so having a vid in the window could be beneficial. I have been hit three time in five years on my motorcycle and each time they claimed i was at fault so i guess i hit mysely on the side. Fortunately i had good witnesses. Such is life.....

JMChase,

Have you received your Mobius cam yet, and if so, how do you like it?? Are you satisfied with the Video quality? I was looking at the same cam to put on some of my planes, and would like some un-biased input! where did you decide to purchase your Mobius from, and how did you like their service?

Thanks, Craig.

I goth the dash cam outfit to use in the car when not flying
i had several questions and emailed to novotm and got responses on Saturday evening believe it or not.
The service is excellent. The software is free just download it and plug the usb from the camera into the pc the software is easy to use
if you watch the video you will understand you need the software to set up the camera. The images are either picture or hd video with sound. The color is better then Gopro. The video will show several examples. Also the camera weighs practically nothing. If you use the camera in your car you need to replace the battery with a capacitor easy to do video explains why i think its five dollars also on Amazon.
I think this camera was specifically designed with rc in mind. Ps dont use velcro to hold camera on plane there have been many reports of it coming loose. If you can use the included holder and find a place to either glue it or screw it down. You may have better luck with velcro but if it drops off you probably wont find it.

JMChase, thanks for the input.. Which version do you have? 1, 2, or 3? I am thinking that the v3 would have too much of a wide angle lens, thinking either V1 or V2 would be best for a reduced fish eye view effect.. What's your opinion?

Thanks, Craig.
