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.

  1. Hi This is my "gasoline gauge" for 3 lipos: Fred
  2. OOps! Sorry It was for Mark A stick? So you let time to time one of the two airplane stick control to move the camera? or is it something else? It's interresting me, I'm looking for this sort of ideas and experiences Fred
  3. Nice videos, Brian Beautiful picture and beautiful country. You rarely use the left/right function . How do you drive it? Twinturbo I Confirm, I like your video very much Fred
  4. I came late on this forum, so I enjoy your videos long time after you all, but better late than never. I enjoy particularly this one, today. http://www.twinturbostang.com/rc/Air_Comba...Mbs_480x360.wmv Very good pursuit, in spite of the fixed camera!! Thera are many other videos I can't see, it's a bit frustrating Sergio, as I anderstood, flown 2 Km range? ( page 7 ) Very good! Is it with a regular radio TX? Fred
  5. Thank you for this very interresting link, Vrflyer! Finalement, on est nombreux et intéressants! Wilson, I loved your dog fight very much!!!! ... and the sounds are really excitings nice video! Dog fight is one of my final objectifs. Fred
  6. Very happy you enjoy it. You have to click on " lire la suite" to read the complete articles. I'd like to share ideas and opinions . It is that way we will progress, I think. Fred
  7. Rob, you can't see that, but my face just turned red! Thank you. Did you start on Fpv flying? I'm very blundering with a PC , so I never been able to upload and use video movie maker, so there are lot of better videos aboard the Canari you will not see . Pursuit, touch'n go, etc. The movie you know has been prepared ( I don't know the exact word ) by a friend in 2005 ,he lives far from me, now. Jhon, The video aboard the flying wing was my first real, complète FPV flight. In 2004, august the 15. A great day for me! you can't imagine how happy I was! I'd be happy if I could help or encourage someone. My website ( modestly ): http://fredvanh.free.fr/ All in french, sorry. First page, a picture of my next FPV plane it'll be ready for summer, I hope. Fred Easy to tost pictures here. Great!
  8. Hello acristobal It's really international, here. Great! The speed gauge is based on the "Alti OSD". It has been modified by a friend of mine with a différencial pressure, and to drive a servo ( is it the good word in english? ) Because I prefer to have the speed on a pointer gauge than numbers on the screen. My frien ( very good friend! ) made a regular Alti OSD too, ti gaves me altitude and voltage of the video battery. I just recieved a new device: a "fuel" gauge. For 3 cells lipo ( a very very very gooooooood friend!! ). It has not flown yet. His website: http://www.tera-concept.com/ The new site for the concepteur of the altimeter: http://www.gentles.ltd.uk/gentvu/altiosd.htm It's not very expansive He gone from France to USA, and now, sell it ready to fly ( before, we had to make it ourselves with the plan ) . I think it is possible to add a speed indication, now . Abord the flying wing and the Canari, the gauges were made by miself. They are mecanical. Fred
  9. Did you try: "autres videos de cet utilisateur? for example: http://video.google.fr/url?docid=-78533419...ZDT400ZjV6qE07g
  10. Thank you, Jhon. The gauge is a speed indicator. You can see the Pitot pipe under the port wing. I like to have this indication. Not indispensable with this plane, but with some other, it's not the same. My précédent fpv plane ( 2.5m, 5kg ) had a "too slow" buzzer too. Very efficient: you can turn your head and look around without danger. No need to keep an eye on the speed indicator. When you heard the buzzer screaming in the cockpit, you know you have to push slghtly on the stick. My next fpv plane will have this device. John, sometime I forget i'm not on the hard ground ( in french, we said "on the cow's floor" ). The video is very ruined on the net, but I pilote with a TV, ( fed up with the glasses ) and the quality is very good. I like to see some détails of the plane, frame of window, wing struts, etc, it make me be in the athmosphere. sound is important too: I hear less the jokes of my friends! ( friends, is it the exact word? ) Fred
  11. successfully! When i first post, I thought I would stop quickly, but in fact, I think I willcome here from time to time. Very nice reception, thanks a lot. My landing wasn't very good. I came on a oblique line, and not enought gaz; but it was my first fpv flight with my Fieseler Storch, and my first fpv flight too with my new modifyed radio with joy stick. It was also my first successfull fpv flight since more than a year of break ( important change in my life ), after two bad trys to come back. ( see: "a un metre près, ça passait". In google video, click on " autres videos de cet utilisateur", you will see some of my others videos). The little lost of my video didn't scared me, I saw worste for my first steps . Fred
  12. Salut Denis, quelles sont les nouvelles? Le Français est donc toléré ici? J'essaie ( timidement ) d'élargir mon horizon. ça bouge, ici? Fred
  13. Hi Wilson, Thanks for your nice reception, and sorry for my very bad english. Scary video drop? ... Because y come too low? Fred
