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. Mark I think I remember you saying that you're in Australia?? You might like to have a look at this site for 2.4Ghz antennas. They also have all the adapters as well.
  2. That's very interesting, thanks Kilrah. I'll make sure I check the prop is balanced.
  3. Nice video. How long have you been flying FPV for? Is all the jerkiness from your level of experience, or something else? Do you find it difficult to fly FPV? The more videos I see the more I want to try it for myself.
  4. -AT-Sergio00: I finally got to download your video and I must say the quality is amazing, excellent work. I have to say though, your country side looks as dry (read brown) as where I live hear in Australia. It does look like you have a great flying field though. Thanks again for the video.
  5. Someone just needs to hack the sonic combat modules from Hobbyzone.
  6. No problems 4mla1fn, glad it's of use to someone. I just hope the Easy Stars become available soon.
  7. Well I just spoke to the store that has my Easy Star order and he told me that the guy (Vrflyer) who did that FPV thing is to blame for the Australia (world) wide shortage of the Easy Star model. Apparently Multiplex had to manufacture another batch of these airplanes. So Denis, your famous for more than just your FPV flying.
  8. Hey Mark Try Robot Parts here in Australia. I got the 5 volt one for about $21. Cheers
  9. Another update; I have soldered Tx/camera together and have done a video test on my sons rc car. I had perfect video to a range of about 150 metres and that was with the receiver inside my house. Very happy with the video quality. I'm STILL waiting for some Easy Stars to arrive in Australia. Pictures of my breakout board that came with the BWAV kit. I soldered the Vreg onto the board.
  10. Have a look at this site WiFi Antennas It's an Australian site, but they have a lot of good info and products. -AT-Sergio00: Very nice aircraft! Do you have a video from the weekend? Would love to see some of Spain. The siren is an interesting addition, have you had to use it yet?
  11. Now that's exciting news.... I'm not enjoying trying to make my own.
  12. Thanks Terry. The Tx and camera are both from Black Widow AV and will both run at 5V. This is the specs for the voltage reg. It's from the same company who make the anyvolt mini. * The SW033/SW050 family is pin-compatible with the common 780X family of linear voltage regulators. * They have integrated decoupling capacitors, so external capacitors are not generally necessary. Performance: * Up to 30V input range * 83% typical efficiency, up to 87% * <2% ripple * 1A output (continuous) * 1.25A peak output (1 min) * 1.3V typical dropout voltage at full load * Can be put in p
  13. Thanks Wavess. Does this wiring diagram look right?
  14. I'm going to be powering mine with a 2s 800mah Lipo with a 5v fixed voltage regulator. http://www.rc-cam.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=1269
  15. Fantastic video, video editing and music editing, as always Denis. I'm glad you're enjoying the fruits of the 11 year journey. Thank you.
