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. This will be as off topic and weird as they come. So, everybody that has a cat has problems with them getting up on counters and there's lots of gadgets you can get to try to shoo them away like audio alarms and even propellent dispensers. I'm not NEARLY as proficient electronically as you guys. For exapmle, I was able to build myself a DIY solar system calculating load, voltage drop, conductors and so forth but ohms law is about as technical as I've got in the past. I've has this idea kicking around in the back of my head for quite some time but am unsure about some things. How bi
  2. That was gorgeous and interesting. Weren't you afraid of your stuff getting wet?
  3. > Your links to the two China vendors are what made me think you are on a tight budget. But even if money is not an issue, building your own 1.2 GHz patch antenna is not difficult. As I mentioned, this is a DiY forum so my advice tends to swing that way. That would make for two steep learning curves. I'm not scared. >Agreed! The devil is in the details. Besides Terry's listed items, it's also good to know the exact video system frequencies you expect to use, what model you are flying, and the R/C system frequency. This is what I'm trying to figure out now. I have several radi
  4. I don't know how you got the impression I'm on a low budget, I'm not, but saving money is always a good thing, so I'm willing. I am however still flailing because I get conflicting information everywhere I ask. I intend to buy dominator goggles but was told that they only work on 5.8, which I believe is false. Now I'm told from different sources that I can't use 1000mw lawmates because it will drown out my navigation signals. I was also told that lawmates are premium equipment and twice as expensive than other stuff which is why I'm confused about the low budget thing. In any case, it's hard t
  5. I hope so too. I'm building an rc fpv lawnmower so I can cut the grass from inside my house, for the most part.
  6. Will THIS one work well?, ....also do I need some kind of filter ...2.4/1.2=2 exactly. ( ...working on my HAM but haven't learned everything yet. ) Thanks so much for the info.
  7. Hello everybody. I'm new to fpv and am in the process of buying componenets. I already bought a camera and a set of lawmate 1.2 tx\rx. I live in a valley in the mountains on theoutskirts of town and am surrounded by mostly trees. I haven't bought googles I wear glasses and am farsighted. My questions would be: What kind of goggle would suit me best? I was leaning towards the dominators. What kind of antenna's should I be looking for? I want 5-6db gain. Plus I want OSD for distance, heading, altitude, voltage, airspeed, etc. Thanks
