Plenty of room for flying if your not being bothered by dogs and their owners lol!

It seems to fly pretty well and "turns on a dime !" which is what you want it to do.
There was a shot were you had it just off the ground,like 2 inches or something was that intentional ? and did you poop your pants at that height rolf

Is that full speed or still more throttle available ?

Anyway nice vid,it seems to be ok quality for filming flying around but not ideal for FPV flying I bet.

Will post this vid about the Mobius,the quality seems better than the go pro but I think you said you didn`t fancy the latency but things like that are a price we pay.

Thanks Smile Still learning ofcourse, this is the fourth time flying with the Eachine. Slowly getting a feel for the controls. Can almost start trying tricks, but atm i'm happy just flying around without crashing. Will post more vids in the future.

There is plenty of throttle available. This is not even 50%. The quad hovers at around 35% throttle, moving forward without adding throttle it already picks up quite some speed. Though it is a nice place to fly a bit, there is not enough space to go really fast. Couldn't find what the exact topspeed of the Eachine250 is, but I estimate it is about 75-80 mph.

Not pooped my pants, but I did skip a heartbeat at that 2inch ground pass. I intended not to crash there, and did a nice job at it. Cool

There are 2 cameras onboard. One for recording and the other for flying fpv. A security camera is best for flying fpv because it has lowest latency. Problem is that most of them can only send but not record the footage. It's possible to record with a groundstation, but then you also record any interference from the live transmission. That's why it is better to mount a extra camera for recording with good imagequality. You could use a GoPro as fpvcamera, but even those have slight latency, which is not good.

Here's a video showing the difference:

Straight from camera the imagequality is better/more clear. But the file was quite large, so I reduced the quality for uploading.

I don't think the Mobius is a good camera for flying fpv with a quadcopter. It will be fine for a normal heli or slow plane, but a quadcopter can be very unstable, specially when flying in acro mode and stabilizer is turned off. You need the low latency to be able to correct quickly, or the quad will fall out of the sky. A mini security camera is the best and cheapest solution, it is lightweight and easy to replace if the lens gets damaged.
