Unlike other reviewers who do unboxing reviews and short video tests the Drone Flyers team will test this great little action camera over a period of time and in different scenarios.
We will attach the Mobius Mini to a number of Quadcopter/Drones to show how suitable it is for Aerial Photography and Videography and to Racing Drones to test it as an FPV camera and we will use it as a take anywhere pocket camera to show how versatile it is. We will also take a look at the software that supports the excellent Mobius Mini Lightweight Action Camera.
The Drone Flyers Team have tested many Action Cameras including all the previous Mobius versions, the classy Runcam HD Action Camera, the Foxeer Legend and FireFly 6Q and believe the Mobius Mini Lightweight Action Camera is right up there with the very best of them, tiny in size it maybe but it is not lacking in quality.
PLEASE NOTE: WE RECOMMEND YOU USE THIS MINI ACTION CAMERA WITH THE COPPER MOUNT/ HEATSINK ATTACHED TO AVOID OVERHEATING AND DAMAGING THE ELECTRONICS. WE HAVE TESTED IT WITH AND WITHOUT THE CAMERA MOUNT AND THERE IS CONSIDERABLE DIFFERENCE IN THE TEMPERATURE>
CAPTURE THAT SPECIAL MOMENT WHEREVER YOU ARE WITH THE MINI MOBIUS ACTION CAMERA
All these images were captured from the Mobius Mini Action Camera. Due to its size and lightweight construction the Mobius Mini is perfect to take anywhere with you.
The Fireworks image above was captured from a Mobius Mini at the Hogmanay celebrations at Edinburgh Castle on New Years Eve 2016 in near pitch black conditions.
This tiny little action camera from Mobius has been produced primarily for First Person View (FPV) Racing Drones. Due to its ultra lightweight construction, it only weighs 27 grams (without the heatsink) and it is perfect for attaching to FPV Racers. We however feel that it is one of the very best take anywhere multi purpose action cameras you can buy and many reviewers have overlooked this fact.

Low latency of composite video out, less 60ms 1080p 60fps, less 40ms 720p 120fps
Smart Mounting Solution with Heatsink functionality
Amazing image quality for a camera this size
The case bottom has 4 M2 screw studs molded into it and anchored in the heat sink inside. These can be used to attach the camera to a flat plate for a mount of your own design.
To attach the Mobius Mini Action Camera to the AOSENMA CG035 Drone we used a standard Action Camera Helmet Mount. We find this works well on many Quadcopters, you wont get jello free video due to the lack of a gimbal but with practice you will get decent results and as you will see from our testing the screen grabs from this little camera are excellent.
Please Note: The AOSENMA CG035 Drone with GPS used for testing can be found on BANGGOOD CLICK THIS LINK
The Mobius Mini has a Smart Mounting Solution with Copper Heatsink functionality with a Detachable Standard 1/4″ camera mount and we suggest you use the Copper Heatsink at all times. It will bring the weight of the camera up to approximately 31 grams but will protect it from overheating. Another quick tip we would advise is that on a very rare occasion the Mobius Mini can freeze and in order to get it working again you will have to reset it. This is relatively easy to do but you will need a paper clip or similar so we advise you carry one with you just in case. To reset the Mobius Mini Camera just insert the paperclip into the right small hole at the back of the camera and gently press in (see below).
Please note the Mobius Mini can be used as a webcam and the software allows you to flip the recording making it perfect for Aerial capture.
