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. Ops! I guess I am late on these tips. Thank you Kilrah. carlei_aeromidia.
  2. Hi folks, Recently I discovered that Aerocomm has dropped their price for SDK-AC4424-200 data modem, a development kit with two 2.4 GHz 200 mW transceivers, cables, software, AC power adapter, dipole antennas and adapter boards. All that stuff for U$ 199.95! Follow the links. http://www.aerocomm.com/OEM/SDK.htm and http://www.mouser.com/catalog/621/107.pdf Regards, carlei_aeromidia
  3. Mr. RC-CAM, Your second suggestion worked ok. Thank you for your kind help. carlei_aeromidia
  4. Sorry, but somehow my explorer browser cannot find this link. I cannot understand what is going on. carlei_aeromidia
  5. Hi Mr. RC-CAM, Shearching for software drivers link you referred (www.ew.usna.edu) could not be found. Do you think there is any typewriting error? Do you know any other source? Regards, carlei_aeromidia.
  6. Mr. RC-CAM. Thank you very much for your help. Cool tips. Regards, carlei_aeromidia
  7. Hi folks, I want to track my helicam position in real-time using gps receiver signal, on my laptop (of course, an assistant will be monitoring). I am searching for the most affordable and simplest way to achieve it. Does Tinytrak3 or PocketTracker from www.byonics.com fit my needs? Does it work well? If I opt for PocketTracker, since it has a 2-meter FM transmitter integrated, what receiver should I use on the ground, and how to connect this receiver to my laptop (OS Windows 98)? What GPS map software can I use? Other option commented by Cyber-flyer and others in this forum is to use Tinyt

  11. Assembled my MAHI board last week in about 4-5 hours with the help of a friend. I used surgical nippers and microscope with 10-16x magnification (my job tools) that were of great help. It was a nice experience to see it working fine after assembling. Mr RC-CAM, I only found some hardware details that should be improved. S1, S2 and S3 switches should be together for a setup separate module. The LED should be solded not on the board, but a wire extension should be used to place it out on the box. To solve these hardware issues, I used a silicone tube with optical fiber inside to c
  12. Hi Thomas, I wish to purchase the MAHI parts Experimentor's Kit #2: Programmed PIC, PCB, all SMT components: $53 Please provide me with your PayPal acct information. Congratulations for the assembling instruction manual. Great job! Regards, Roberto Carlei.
  13. Hello Mr. RC-CAM, I also want one. Thanks. Roberto Carlei.
  14. Is there any amplifier developed to increase range for FM 72MHz transmitters? This issue came to my thoughts since the range for FPV video flying is growing up each day. How to reach 5000 feet or longer if my 72MHz transmitter signal may not follow this video signal range? On the other hand, if I stretch 72MHz transmitter range, I might be susceptible to far interference from other eventual aeromodellers. My interest on rising this discussion is because I intend to use new DSR technology from FMA Direct with their brand new FS8 72MHZ receiver and Co-pilot on my heli. This 8-channel FM recei
  15. Hi Val, I meant one receiver on one channel with two CP patch antenna positioned vertical but opposite, and another receiver on different channel with a CP patch antenna positioned horizontal, then both video signal acquired by both receivers converges to a RCA adapter to a common video monitor. Does it make sense? I meant positioned vertically. Is that a nonsense? Sorry, I am miles away from being an electronics genius. Regards, Roberto Carlei.
