The Mobius has been a staple of the hobby for some time now. It was one of the first action cameras to be made which was specifically designed to be carried on a quadcopter. The flat design made it far more practical for multirotors than the classic GoPro design, which made it popular throughout the community.
The Mobius has experienced some significant competition in the past year with the Runcam 1 and 2 as well as the Foxeer Legend 1 and 2. Though the Mobius initially had market dominance with its cheap prices and its filming at 1080p at 30 frames per second and 720p at 60 frames per second. Competitors such as Runcam, the GoPro Session, the Runcam V2, and the Foxeer Legend 2 are now filming in 1080p at 60 frames per second, which ensures video free from jerks.

We must admit, though it is nice to see ever increasing competition in the market place, we feel that the Mobius two is too little to late (yes we just used all three ‘toos’ in 6 words). Really at this point in order to truly be an industry leader the mobius needs to be hitting 2K or 4K, especially with strong competition from SJCam with the M20.
We feel that for use in multirotor, the exposed controls could be an issue The door of the memory card is not protected – those who have seen them ejected microSD card on a Mobius knows that it’s not a good idea.
Right now it is selling for about $90 which still undercuts many of the traditional Action cameras, so it could a compelling buy for many?
