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. I tested the Mask and it work Ok. I used it all the day. Here is winter and dint test it in a hot day. I use FOAM to stop the light environmet ( boton and side perimeter ) If you have a big nose, you can give more angle to the down side. No lights Reflections on the screen.
  2. Zorro?? I thought tha was the Daft Punk´s helmet Other photos: Velcro in the side. Look like the plastic is inside of the pin. It is becouse of the 1,5 cm cut Velcro on the top and side Velcro on the top Foam in the borders
  3. I leave here the Picture to do the Z800 mask This picture was inpired in other mask put here, but this draw is personal Instruction: Print the picture in a A3 PAPER A3, them draw the same picture over a flexible black plastic.. I send you in 2 format .PSD and .JPG PSD original: http://www.fileflyer.com/view/t2iTNB6 JPg ( not tested) The original ins the PSD ( I dint test the JPG). PRINT it in ORIGINAL SIZE If your printer dont allow A3 format, you can print it in 2 sheets A4 in the ORIGINAL SIZE ( print in 2 sheets and them you must paste ). Other method is print the
  4. TODAY we tested the Rectractil Antena 2.0 again J.carlos was the pilot and the plane owner. He got 2521 mts of altitude just over the field!!!!! 8271 feets!! Airplane, the same: EASYSTAR MULTIPLEX The antena Retractil worked excelent,, Wich is the electric altitude record?? I listen that was about 2500 but i cant remember exaclty.. ANiBODY KNOW WICH IS THE ELECTRIC FLIGHTS HEIGHT WORLD RECORD? In the field there was 7 FPV!! We had 4 RX following the flights A very good info: We put a wireless temperature sensor in the plane and the info was: In the field: 22º C At
  5. This weekend whe tested the retractil antenna. Very good news. A friend did a high altitude flight. He put my retractil antenna in his setup. When he was at 800 mts altitude, the noise appears in the screen. So he activated the antenna and put it in horizontal position. The noise desapears and the image was clean. He got 1550 mts with his Easystar ( a Spain record ), and the image was very clean. He was flying just over the club at 1550 mts!! He used GPS telemetry. The servo works very well without any vibration So,,,, its works 10 Pts. Sergio
  6. I am agree with Kirlah , the preamps works bad if the source signal is very low. The preamps will put more noice in that conditions. We tested that day a preamps with bad result ( 20 Dbm + - ) I heard that to get good preamps results, the preamps must be 10Dbm or less,, if you put a bigger preamps, you will put more noise. The Power Tx and the distance insn´t linear performance you know that. For example,, 1W is a 30% more range than 500mW just that. I am agree with terry in this point. Would be very interesting do the same test with 1,3 Ghz and 900 Mhz. If anyone have those systems,
  7. HERE THE VIDEO: Server 1: http://www.fileflyer.com/view/0SImrB0 server 2 http://files-upload.com/files/576056/16Kms...sVideoTest.divx Divx is necessary. I dint compress the video to show you the quality. Now, watching the video in my computer, I note that the image is not so good like me and my mate saw in field. But I continue thinking that is good for 10,25 miles ( 16,5 kms away). The day was very bad and windy. The Tx antenna wast in the best place, j.carlos put the antenna inside the model´s cockpit :confused: We tested a rx signal amplificator too( i dont know the mode
  8. Today, me and 4 mates more, did a new range test to the 2,4Ghz video System. In one field was 2 recivers systems ( Field Nº 2 ): Standar lawmate reciver and a Jellow Jaket Diversity. The Standar reciver had a 9 Dbi Omni antenna ( home made ) and in the Diversity reciver had a 14Dbi Patch and a 7Dbi omni. ( the patch was 8º vertical position ) In the other field an Easystar with 1W tx and 3dbi whip antenna ( Field Nº 1 ). The distance between the 2 fileds was 16,5 Kilometers ( 10.25 miles ) Both groups was conected by telefone Well,, we put the antennas watching the field N
  9. Here my 2nd. Retractil Antenna The reason of this device is put the Tx antenna horizontal when we fly over the 800 mts ( 2400 feets ) of altitude. You know that the whip antenna radiate by side. When we fly very hight ( over the 800 mts, we become to lose video signal becouse of the whip antenna can´t radiate us ( if the position is vertical , of course ). If we want coninue ascending, we must fly far to entry in the radiation zone. Is dangeous fly hight and far beouse the winds are very diferents there. Well, all this problem is finish with this device. We will be able to fly over

  11. HI I show you another video that was waiting for edition Was in February 2007 FPV CAMILO ALDAO, Cordoba - ARGENTINA - XIII FESTIVAL DE AEROMODELISMO Are walks along the fields. Is recorded in 2 diferents days ( friday with few people and saturday with a lot) The Zlog altimeter on fridays was wrong reset, but on saturday I put it ok.

Is DVD quality I hope you enjoy it Sergio
  12. This googles was an old know. ( several years ago ) Vrflyer had it? I am not sure, but I remember that it had 26º FOV Old technology and very expensive.
  13. Thank you very much Cyber-Flyer All very clear Thanks for to share the information with us Sergio
  14. Thanks you very much ThomasScherrer and Kilrah. very clear. Like CyberFlyer got the "Altirude Record" I would like to know if he has any more to said. CyberFlyer, I would like listen your experence about Tx video antena position. Thanks Sergio
  15. Yes Kilrah, HD is like to see through a windows. Mi personal Altitude record in an electric plane (Easystar) is 1248 Mts. ( I have an edited video in DivX quality and the Zlog archives if you wants to see something) I have a question to Kilrah or Cyber-Flyer: To get the best video reseption in "Hight Altitudes" ( + 1500 mts ), wich is the best video antenna position? vertical or horizontal?? Your experence is important to me, becouse I´m fraid to put it in horizontal position and them lose signal in the takeoff / landing or in low altitudes ( - 500 mts ). Thanks Sergio
