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. Hi Wilson, No I dont fly FPV yet. Will be getting into it soon though. I cant even spell Kamera. Where do you guys fly here in town? I would like to watch. Cliff
  2. I will ask the question by first telling what I think the Tiny Trak is and how it could be used by RC-CAM types without regards to being a ham. The Tiny Trak is a GPS encoder that was developed basically for the Hams by a Ham. Where the Hams come into play is that there is a world wide network of Hams on allowed frequencies, what we call 2 meters (144-148Mhz) under the name of APRS (Automatic Position Reporting System). The Tiny Trak encoder can be programmed to key the 2 meter radio with information garnered from the GPS module thereby signalling to listening stations its location. The
  3. I have a QST at home, I guess I could look it up. I usually just look at the pictures. This is kinda off topic but I was thinking about using the Byonics TT3 or the SMT module into the audio out of the Camera transmitter, to the receiver and then to the PC sound card. People having any luck with that? Have you seen the 2 meter 300 mw transmitter they now have? All on a 1"X3" card. I had an Eagletree, but it was broken out of the box and am not sure if I want to mess with it when it returns. Does not seem very robust. I really only need the cam and GPS to try some cloudbase flyi
  4. You dont think anyone is monitoring your transmission but believe me they are. I had a less than legal small amplifier on 7MHZ and I wasn't transmitting 10 seconds when a "brother" keyed up to tell me his analyzers were telling him my signal was not up to "hoyle"..ha,ha. and perhaps I should check that my equipment might have something wrong with it.
  5. Will my Advanced get bumped to an Extra?
  6. Mr. RC-Cam, Great work on hacking the system. I know folks would prefer to plug your module into their 8103's or 9303's because of all the programming they have allready done on the radios. Why did you get better resolution with the 8103 as opposed to the DX6 transmitter? Another question. I have popped something trying to charge trans battery too fast. Probably a diode. Where can I look for the broken part, where in the radio? Thanks and good job.
  7. Kilrah, Yeah, I can see four orders for trackers putting you behind a week. ha,ha... Perhaps soon that will be how many are sold every 10 seconds. You have already found solutions for the major nigs and nags. This is like the first car. It would get you down the street and around the corner without breaking down. So it accomplished the major goals, but as more interest develops you will not be able to manufacture enough and can maybe work on improving what is there, without it still being fun. Congratulations for the major breakthrough. Cliff
  8. Eickst, I think Kilrah is finished. The programming work, integration with the radio and the gyro he is using he has developed a good working model that needs little if any further development. His problem is he needs to sell it to XYZ, Co., stay on as consultant for $xxx,xxx per yr/month and let the new company put the product out in force. His solution will expand the RC industry dramatically and touch untold others. Am I right Kilrah? Cliff
  9. Kudos to Kilrah and VRFLYER. Thanks for sharing this development. Kilrah, make sure to post to this forum a picture of your castle when you buy it. Cliff
  10. Antenna, antenna, antenna..amazing what you can do with less than a watt.
