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. Some off topic - but here are the wishes for all of you http://niespodzianka.info/goj Merry Christmas
  2. I had some questions about - i will consider T1 input (new board design) for this purpose coneccted to any free RC channel , however all depends from freee space in chip . For now this 16K small chip holding suprisly lot of informations , countings and functions but one timer is still free .
  3. This parts are inductances - all can be 4,7 to 10uH - goot to add some inductances at both ENG input - also for all ADC inputs - this will help to cut noises from/to RC circuit . If you need naked PCB , write me at PM or at remzibi1-AT-poczta.onet.pl
  4. Here are all compacted informations and files - still growing . http://rc-cam.info/viewtopic.php?p=17008#17008
  5. It is open hardware project under TAPR licence , so not copy and sale allowed - but for personal use no problem . Naked printed bards avaliable or ready devices as complete with(or without) GPS modules . Software is not open source but all compiled files are avaliable , as firmware , font and config files and PC software (in fact all included in PC software).
  6. Fortunate community of this OSD owners are growing and growing , including FPV flyers but not only , even some universitys and high schools for experimental use and other projects adaptations as well as some home designers . So lastly I have many additional questions similat to like that : I like to use OSD in another use - on combant plane (with graphics and sigt to aim enemy) , on boat , on U-boat , on RC-car , on real car with recording , on bicykle , on motorbike as parameter monitor , on my Video monitoring system cooperate with PC , on my personal Videos information sta
  7. The chip is extremly well described in datasheet - in my unit first letters I was able to display literaly within 3 hours . Within two evenings all functions for display anything useful was ready . I recommend to read datasheet - there are also explanations for some tips .
  8. New software is realsed : button function - save home position (short click) - video mode change (NTSC or PAL) press and hold button for about 1 second - cofiguration mode (pressed when conecting to power) show information DONE : - latitude - longitude - speed - altitude - to-home course - to-home distance - satelite quantity - video battery voltage - main battery voltage - flight timer - variometer - UTC Time - UTC Date - alarms for distance , ADC , atitude , batterys voltages - 32 static displayed independent graphical-character symbols configurable
  9. Better NOT . At first units was 5V provided but this done more problems than advantages - simply connect USB cable and connect to external battery OSD for supply , as the supply input(12V) is protected against opposite connection . 5V is not protected by any way , so any accident will cause of burned OSD unit - and this is what we do not want to experience . So always use external battery for power-up OSD - USB cable use only for communication , not for supply .
  10. 2.4GHz TX was covered by trees and lose range . 1.2GHz video downlik was working perfect till last moment .
  11. You right - RC RX is very sensitive for any external glitches and his range can decrease dramtically with bad connections or mess in cables .
  12. There is almost ready software with additional ADCchannels - also for current sensor (any current sensor - possible calibration , even two way curerent sensors) - it will work independently from engine (main battery) voltage measurment . Read some more here http://rc-cam.info/viewtopic.php?t=178 - there will be update with files when ready . The main goal of that OSD was not occupy any RC channel - so it be possible to use with anyone even with very cheap 4 channel TX or 3ch (car) . I do not plane to made any turn on -off function - but never say never . instead of turn-on-off dispal
  13. I didn't expected but for some users reference I must also add the GPS picture with expalnation what side is UP what is BOTTOM . Label is always bottom side , GPS must look the UP side to the sky looking for SATs . I know that even in opposite side it can track 8 sats but better is to keep antenna looking in to the sky
  14. You do not need clibing (faling) rate ? you can use it as graphic indicator like arrow up or down or graphic plus numeric value of climbing or falling rate . This climbing rate is working very accurate as the altidude drift is very slow and climbing rate is derivative - so accuracy almost like with air prassure sensor . Anyway - it is absolutely your invetion how you like have screen layout done .
  15. Terry - you removed almost all information from screen . Let say - it is super minimal version of OSD .
