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. The connectors are available from digikey as that is where I buy ours. We use thru hole parts thus a better hold though people can ague that point till they are blue in the face. It is mainly a person's personal choice. We also use the non R/A ones but we glue the connector down. Digikey's part number for the vertical connectors is: WM1733-ND and for the R/A ones: WM1744-ND. Have fun, BAGGS
  2. Here is the mnf of the items that black widow and others sell. They are called Law Mate. http://www.lawmate.com.tw/PSS/en/ProductsI...Item.aspx?id=24 They mnf alot of cool rf x'mitter and receiver items and will sell direct to you if you meet thier minimum quantity but that is usually alot more then one can afford. They also sell to alot of UK and USA firms who are NOT thier distributors but DO resell thier stuff. They are looking for both USA & UK distributors but that requires that your company sells over $1,000,000.00 in product a year so unless your a millionare do not try and be one
  3. Weird, I have never ever heard of a smb being used for gps equipment. They use either a mcx or a mmcx connector which looks just like the smb connectors out there. Most of the SMB's were used for board to board work with the SMC connector being used for a chassis to antenna or chassis to chassis run. As it is a SMB with threads so once poped on it can be locked down with a turn on the connector. Now the MCX and the MMCX are what the industry picked for use in pcmcia cards for the anttenna connectors and on the even smaller ones they used MMCX.
  4. That series of connectors is also mnf'd by Hirose electric and another company in japan called JAM. Also if I am not crazy the walden group bought by molex also mnf'd this connector but I think they did it to print as a 2nd source. If you send the local hirose electric a clear picture of the connectors and the pins that are used they would normally be able to get you the info you need. Not sure if the Walden reps are as nice. Vaughn P.S. unless it is a NRNR (non refundable non returnable) item the shell can only cost up to $0.50ea in 100pc lots with the pins b
  5. MikeP was correct in what he said but the cost is also an issue as it is not that cheap to get everything that you need to do your work. My suggestion would be the use of the basic stamp modules that can be programed in Pbasic and they use either a pic or a Scenix micro. But if you really want to just either pay us or go 50/50 with us then we can help. My partner and I both program the pic's and atmels. I have a degree and program in 5 languages so drop us a line and lets talk (email about what you want. ) We also can sign and return to you a non disclousure form if you require one. Till we ta
  6. Actually if you go to k8xg.com you will see that this guy is a hobbiest ans is selling more then whats on the gearcam site. So go check it out, I did and I am glad I did. Baggs
