Consider using a board camera for FPV vice the Mobius.

You might notice some lag or latency with the mobius. I prefer to use a separate camera dedicated for FPV. Also you might need a SMA-RP-SMA Adapter for your antennas.

That's cool, but in general there are a lot of guys bagging it out without even trying it for themselves and they are just going by what the haters are all saying!

I love it and honestly think it's better than any separate FPV camera I've ever used and that INCLUDES the Pixim SeaWolf WDR 690 TVL!!

Need a little help
I've been flying around 5years and want to fpv and got a 5.8setup off eBay 200ma transmitter and the 5808receiver with clover antennas holding the transmitter powered by a 500Mah3s and walk I can only get about 50 feet and the screen flickers and goes out I've tried different channels and nothing changes what can the problem be.
I really want to do the fpv thing but spending money to get no results is starting to suck any advice

Hey,
That happened to me when I first started. Get some FPV goggles or a FPV screen from RMRC or RV. Most common cheap screens blue screen. Could you post some pics of your set up?

Sounds like the Video receiver is on the wrong channel.

Test the channel that is one up and the one that is one down from the channel that only gives you 50 feet and I'd bet its actually one of them and not the one you are seeing the picture on.

I did that a few weeks ago, I changed the channel thinking it was the right one but once I flew about 50m away, my picture died very quickly and so I landed and chranged the Vrx channel up one and that was the right channel and I then proceeded to fly a few hundred metres away.

I hate to say it but my money is on the fact that ebay stuff generally sux :-/
Not to say its all bad, but there is a LOT going on with your video and control link, and compromising in either one of these areas is just not worth it.
I made the classic noob mistake a few years ago with a crazily powerful awesome sounding ebay vid tx/rx and couldn't get it working more than 50 meters away, and that was by itself without even trying to use it with my rc link at the same time.
Without going into detail, there's a lot of work that goes into making good video link and rc link components like the stuff from rmrc I recommend and dragonlink uhf. They're the only ones I've tried to be honest but they have worked 27,000 times better than any cheap ones I tried.
With the time I spent trying to make the cheap stuff work I could've saved up enough to buy a more expensive tried and tested setup a few times over lol
