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.

  5. I'm definitely not an expert with pics or PBP. The only thing that comes to mind is that you’re not getting a pulse on the pulsin pin. Do you actually have the RC RX connected? If not then it is waiting until it times out before sending the pulsout. If the RX is connected double check that it is connected to the correct pin. Make sure you have a ground connection between the RX and your pic circuit.
  6. Leadtek has some pretty small modules...http://www.leadtek.com/gps.html Mark

    Mini monitor

    We’ve got one out at the office where I work. It’s hooked up to a security camera and runs 24/7. It’s been going for a couple of months without any problems. I think the brand name on the front is Lillypup. I believe it was purchased on eBay and shipped from HK. It looks exactly the same as the one at compgeeks. Mark
  9. Keith, I forgot to mention that if you cut the mic off it should eliminate some video interference. At least this is the case for the 2.4GHz HK cameras. To test this theory blow hard into the mic and see if it causes horizontal lines in the video. Mark
  10. I’ve been able to successfully eliminate the reddish color seen on the cmos cameras when used outdoors. All it takes is a little piece of black electrical tape ~7mm x 4mm. Remove the lens. Cut a small piece of tape and place it over the right side of the sensor. I start by placing the tape on the far right edge. Screw the lens back in and apply power. This is to make sure the tape is not visible in the video image. If not, remove the power and lens. Move the tape to the left a mm or so. Check the video again. Continue until you can just see the edge of the tape in the video. Now back the tape
  11. you missed a couple "I want one" on page 7 mark, 7-12-04 08:44 Ensignnolo, 7-12-04 10:44
  12. RC-CAM, Could you post the Digi-key parts required to complete the board? I need to place an order with Digi-Key this week so I thought I would just order everything at once. thanks, Mark
  13. I was also able to adjust focus after loosening the setscrew. AI, if you can wait I should have a few 5V CX171 cameras at the end of July. I can let one go for $109 if you're interested. BTW, nice video. Mark
