Attention: RC-CAM.com will be closing down August 2021.

The RC-Cam.com forum was the very first online community dedicated to the advancement of wireless video cameras on radio controlled (R/C) models. This is now called "FPV" (First Person View). We are proud of the contributions that our members have made to the FPV hobby.

We've seen significant changes over the last twenty years. Initially there were a lot of eager R/C hobbyist that built their own video systems. Allowing these creative individuals to share their work was the purpose of this site. Now the FPV market is flooded with low cost systems; Sadly DiY FPV video projects are now rarely discussed.

RC-CAM.com (main site and forum) will be closing down August 2021. This is being announced now (March 2021) so that everyone has time to download any information that is important to them. After the site is shutdown the information will no longer be available here.

We appreciate every member's involvement with advancing the FPV hobby. It is indeed sad to say goodbye to all our online friends. Be safe and stay healthy.

  1. Have you got any recommendations to which camera to go for, ive found this one in the uk! http://www.henrys.co.uk/cctv/493l.htm Gareth
  2. Sorry! cant get the link to work http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Sharp-1-3-CCD-COLOR-...1QQcmdZViewItem

  4. Hi all, i have found this camera on ebay and would like to know what your thoughts are. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Sharp-1-3-CCD-COLOR-...1QQcmdZViewItem Thanks Gareth
  5. This little gadget could be ideal for recording your movies on from your wireless cam. mustek PVR-H140 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/MINT-CONDITION-MP4-P...1QQcmdZViewItem It can record from any AV signal to mpeg4 at 30 fps, 40gb storage.
  6. I have taken my 1.2 GHz system out for another try last weekend and it worked perfectly, I taped the camera outboard on the wing of my cap 232 with the battery inside over the CG, I didn’t fly FPV but got a friend to fly around the local common at about 700 meters away and the views are fantastic, I didn’t even have to retune the receiver and I had no drop outs at all, I think what has made a huge difference is clipping my transmitter aerial down to 62mm to match my transmitting frequency. My system consists of: -Hong Kong 1.2 GHz manual tune, modified with the tuning knob moved to the o
  7. Ill move on to the PLL system then. where did you get your 10mW transmitter and reciver from? what brand is it? Gareth
  8. It looks like you have had some fantastic results with your system, im having problems with my 1.2 ghz setup, it has a manual tune on the reciever and it seems like im having to fine tune all the time, im gonna order those airwave modules soon and move on to 2.4ghz pll. Gareth
  9. I dont know if anybody has seen this link already but check out the tiny 1.8g video transmitter and the price. http://www.microcameras.com/index.htm its not a uk supplier but worth a look! Gareth
  10. Good work, which modules have you gone for and what camera are you using? Gareth
  11. Hi mate, my next project is going to be using these transmitters and recievers, suplied in the uk. http://www.active-robots.com/products/radi...v-modules.shtml they are cheap but require a small amount of soldering and wiring up, and go for a CCD camera not CMOS. Gareth
  12. Hi, i think im gonna give my current setup a go and see how it performs in the air, my next project will probably use an airwave 612 transmitter and receiver, they are low cost and other people seem to be getting good results. http://www.active-robots.com/products/radi...v-modules.shtml A ccd camera is also going to have to be a must, but not sure what to go for, i was thinking of some thing with 420 tv lines for a good quality video. Gareth
  13. Hi, i spliced open the plastic potted joint where all wires met and could not see anything, but i did not check inside the red power connector plugs, the camera seems to be working as normal at the minute. Are all CMOS cameras 5v? Gareth
