I'm also having a constant beeping in the recorded videos. Is this normal?

I ordered the cheapest "nameless" 16 GB class 10 card on eBay (from Taiwan) for about $12, and it seems to work fine...

I tested the card with CrystalDiskMark, and I get pretty decent continuous writing speeds of about 6 MB/s.

I know that class 10 is overkill for Mobius, but nevertheless seems to work fine.

@Tom, thanks for answering

Finished reading thread and immediately ordered one of these. Am blown away by the quality of some of these videos. I've been waiting for a lightweight gopro alternative for a long time. My fpv plane is about to become a lot lighter.

I typically fly for 2 hrs+ ( Powered Paraglider) so I need 32gb not 16gb. Anyway, thanks for your input.

But having said that, I think it would not be too difficult to make one from a spare lens cap. I don't have one to try, but I do have some good thin optically clear glass pieces used for microscope slides. You can get a whole box of (75-100) for about $5US. I don't know if they will fit inside the lens cap and still allow it to snap into place on the camera case since the glass is about 1mm thick. But it could be glued on the front. But you'd have to cut the glass to fit, which can be done with a Dremel tool and diamond cutting wheel. I've done this before for other small cameras.

But your suggestion is a good one if the developer could come up with such a ready made snap on cover. It could be used in lieu of the rubber cover to protect the lens, and not have to worry about removing it before shooting like some have said. And they could be made with UV haze filter media, polarized media, etc. for more discriminating photography. I should be getting some lens covers soon, so may give this a try.
Yeah the common or garden variety camera UV lens would be a good choice
as they are cheap enough, made of good glass and give UV as well. And as you say not too hard to cut out with a diamond wheel.

Here's one that may be good enough http://dx.com/p/shun-yi-uv-camera-le...ter-52mm-54076
They do have more expensive ones though

Same for me, I just got a 32g class 10 (a slow class 10 for my quick checks), from ebay for 18.9$ ... it works fine on mobius and sj1000 ... but I got a corrupted file from a windows copy ... so ... not sure these cheap ebay microSD are a good value

In all of my videos there is a beep sound every second. Here is a link with a sample:
Mobius Action Cam Issue Sound Beeping (0 min 20 sec)

Are you carrying a cell phone or cordless phone with you? I hear some thing similar in my computer speakers some times when my cell phone is close to them.

I wonder if it is noise from bursting the data to the card since it seems to have a regular pattern. Anyway it would seem it might be a camera with a defect since other cameras are not doing the same thing.
