Attention: RC-CAM.com will permanently shut down on August-08-2021.

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 was announced several months ago (March 2021) to allow our members ample 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.

Delcam's Achievements


RC-Cam'er (2/4)



  1. I do get the best results from the Yb2normal groundplane antenna (with the four stakes as ground) with my fels tx....... Delcam
  2. Have a look at www.delemarre.ciscon.nl and you will find a suitable audio amplifier for these TX's greetings Delcam
  3. If you look at http://www.delemarre.ciscon.nl you will find a example to make these modules work. Remember that you do need an radio amateur license to operate these modules of more than 10 mW. Delcam, the Netherlands
  4. Hi, I am also very curious about the discone antenna. Can you give more info on that? Some pictures? Hans Delemarre
  5. Is it possible to make a antenna splitter to couple two RX antennas to get a better coverage of the area where is flown using two GPP antennas. I found an interesting site, http://www.vhfman.freeuk.com/radio/antenna...s.html#Splitter where this was demonstrated for lower frequency antennas. Would it be possible to use the same principle for the 2.4 Ghz frequencies? Hans Delemarre
  6. See the site of servo city and your problem can be ove in a short time....www.servocity.com Hans Delemarre, The Netherlands
  7. Have a look at the site of VRflyer. I did and it got me started... http://pages.videotron.com/vrflyer/angindex.html Hans Delemarre, the Netherlands
  8. Dennis, good to see all back on the net again. Hans delemarre
  9. The reciever for these modulles is also offered for a ridiculously low price by the same vendor when compared to the HongKong offering... Hans Delemarre
  10. Dennis, That would be nice! I found your site the most informative when I first started with this part of the hobby. I refer to it on my site so it would be nice if you would be able to get it up and running again. Hans Delemarre, the Netherlands
  11. Dennis, Very good to see you back!! Do you still have your very informative website on the web? Hans Delemarre, the Netherlands
  12. Definite Insanity, Try http://www.delemarre.ciscon.nl/id118.htm On my PC this gives the page where I start with the actual description of the PCB I made to facilitate the use of these modules. Hans Delemarre, the Netherlands
  13. In my case the service was perfect. I asked first for more info on the modules and got the answer to my question within 24 hours. Then I asked for availability and it proved that the 500mW modules were on back order. Within a week I got an e-mail telling that they had arrived. I then proceeded to order two modules and the angled SMA connectors. Five days later I had everything delivered by the mailman. I made one module into a working 500 mW tx (see my website) and it functions beautifully. I also got the new camera from Bill Strong (blackwidowAV) and this is also an improvement over my previous set-up. I allready had the receiver (actualy two) so I didn't need another. When buying from Fels you allways have to buy (andpay) for a complete set...... Hans Delemarre
  14. The wireless cam almost certainly has a five volt regulator build into the connector. (see if there is any warning not to remove this connector from the cam and replace it with another...) Then replacing the 8 volts with a 8.4 volts supply doesn't matter to much. What the current concerns: this is only determined by the actual demand of the cam while in use. It will only be sligthly higher on 8.4 volts compared to working on 8 volts. But do remember that a freshly charged battery will have a higher output voltage than the stated 8.4. It can go as high as 1.6 volts per cell in the pack for a short period of time! In my experience most of these cams are rated for a voltage of up to 9,6 volts. SO read the manual carefuly and see if you can find any comment on this. DO you know the make of your cam? I have a similar one and maybe we could compare our findings. IF the slight voltage difference is still causing you to worry, then place a 1n5001 diode in series with the plus line and this will drop the voltage by 0,6-0,7 volts..... (b.t.w. how did you get the type of letteringon the pictures? I am looking for this type of font to make lanyards with "aircraft text" on them) Hans Delemarre, www.delemarre.ciscon.nl the Netherlands
  15. ....in fact the address from the UK is not new here on this forum. It has been on the links page for a long time. I got it from there about 9 month's ago and ordered the modules from the UK together with the SMA connectors for rhe antenna. The connector for the TX and RX module to get your wiring in order is from Harwin. Hans Delemarre.
