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.
Umm, decoding demodulated NTSC even in an FPGA may be a bit more of a hassle than I expected. One challenge is going to be all the DSP filtering that needs to be done to separate the luma signal from the chroma subcarrier and modulation. Decoding color information will require implementing a phase locked loop within the FPGA to lock on to the colorburst, and require analog means to decode it. GNU radio and the SDR community might give me some insight this all works. My first prototype will probably be black and white, and may even have the dot crawl all over everything lol! It looks like an un
OK, I'm joining in on this adventure! I posted on reddit asking about AHD video systems wondering the feasibility of them. Looks like it isn't a totally far-fetched idea! My thoughts on the AHD system: Mr.RC-Cam, I commend your progress , I saw the DVR video of the FPV using AHD system, this would be a promising avenue for higher quality on small builds. There is still some work to be done as you pointed out, we need improve error handling a LOT, and allow the signal to degrade gracefully. It looks like it is FM moduated, which has the characteristic of digital where it either
