Mobius. wide angle or normal for a miniquad
« on: August 01, 2014, 05:01:50 PM »

Title says it all...

Any suggestions?  I plan to use it as my flight cam.

I don't use it as my flight cam, but I have the standard lens for my video on my drq250. To me it gives a nice field of view.

wide angles best,when flying fast you can still see the ground and also able to see more to the left and right..

I use a 'normal' one as my flight cam and I have never found myself wishing Id bought the 'wide' one.......Then again, Ive never flown using a 'wide' :+ :-\

Be aware there is a couple of milliseconds delay on them. I don't find it a problem but I know some people do.

I much prefer the video from the standard lens over the wide, I don't use it for FPV view though.

I did a comparison video which shows the various settings with both lens.

FOV static comprison

Mobius quick FOV test Orig A lens vs Wide B lens in wide/narrow views


Micro quadcopter flight comparison

Mobius Orig A vs Wide B lens comparison in 30fps and 60fps on FPV250 Micro Quadcopter


I've actually ordered a standard lens/module to replace the wide one on my 2nd camera, as to me the wide lens is unusable, so if anyone wants a wide lens/module for cheap and can wait a few weeks drop me a PM. It looks like its fairly straightforward to swap the lens/module over:

The only problem is the lag on the video feed from this camera as a flight cam .
It might give you a problem when at speed .
just a thought  .

Just to update I swapped the lens/module over from the wide B lens to original A lens at the weekend on my second mobius, its really easy to swap over, two screws the top flips off and the camera is just wedged in, and the ribbon cable has a release bar and just slides out. You could swap back and forth pretty easily in a couple of minutes.

The A lens/module came already focused so no adjustment needed, just drop in and it worked.

My wide B lens module (lens and sensor) is NOW SOLD

I've had both, and I've used both as the flight cam on my quadcopter.

I had the normal lens first, then when I lost the mobius when it was on a different aircraft, I took the opportunity to buy the wide angle one.

the normal one never felt like I was able to see enough around me when flying, the wide one is brilliant and the extra visibility has made me a more confident pilot.

Although I have personally tested the lag/latency on the mobius live AV out in the workshop... there IS some lag... but it's tiny.

I fly my quad fast and slow using the mobius live AV out and the lag has never been an issue for me.

In fact, the Live AV out is so good, that I plan on never buying another flight cam again, I will just build a little platform so I can move my mobius around from airframe to airframe. HD and flight cam from this camera is brilliant for such a good price.
