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.
If you like, you can email me your requirements, and as long as it's not too complex give me a day or 2 to code it for you, then if you just buy a cheap programmer you can use the hex code to program it and yr off - else if you can send me some coin, I'll post you out some programmed chips. Programing boards are pretty cheap tho, I recommend the P16PRO40, it's very cheap - you can buy it either pre assembled or in kit form, and best of all it takes a huge range of chips. One thing with it tho - make sure you invest a lil extra for a 40 pin ZIF socket - it just makes burning an absolute bre
I'm looking at building a small ROV with a 2 axis panning camera (2 micro servos) I want to be able to have video glasses with a sensor of sorts to tell it in which direction your head is pointing. I've thought about a 3 axis hall effect sensor - and using the earths flux lines as a reference. But the ones on the market seem to have either too low res - or they have a settling time of just under half a second - which I think would make you feel sick. I've also thought about using 4 photodiodes mounted 90 degrees to each other in a corner cube type configuration, and having a modulated IR
