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 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.
I bought a Nutex video transmitter (http://www.nutex.com.tw/mini.htm) from Security Cameras Direct. (They sell it as the "WLS2404".) The transmission quality/range seems OK (for a Part 15-approved device), but my unit seems to have a painfully slow power cycle recovery time. If I turn the transmitter off and then turn it back on right away, the receiver does not lock to the resulting signal. Waiting 30 seconds to turn it on improves the odds a bit, and waiting a minute improves them more. But really to be guaranteed a reliable start you have to wait 2 MINUTES to turn it on again. I verified this with a wall power supply hooked up only to the Nutex unit, so there are no battery discharge phenomena that could be causing my experience. So, a couple questions: 1. Has anyone else experienced this behavior with a Nutex transmitter? 2. Are other low-power transmitters more robust? Specifically I'm wondering about the X-10 unit and the 12V 2.4 GHz unit I see on Black Widow at http://www.blackwidowav.com/bwav2450casedtx.html Thanks very much, Lambert
