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. Does anyone have a source to purchase a 900mhz dual polarized patch antenna? Basically imagine taking two patch antennas, one vertically polarized and the other horizontally polarized. Now merge them together into a single housing and you have what I'm looking for. Strange thing is that no one seems to sell these buggers. I found this one but can't find a reseller, and they're not returning calls or email. http://lairdtech.thomasnet.com/item/rfid-a...?&forward=1 I travel with my FPV setup and do not like having to deal with two large 900mhz patch antennas, especially now with a
  2. Anyone have any experience with the brand name "BaDa"? They make several 2.4ghz transmitters ranging from 500mw to this one that claims 3.5W. I noticed that the power consumption is very high on some, for example the 2W version's documentation seems to say it uses 3000mw of power at 12V. There are several also on ebay ranging from $50-$60USD. http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.19831
  3. All I did was mount the camera and video TX with Futaba Zeal tape. It's a kind of greenish rubber and is the best at isolating vibration. I use it also to cushion the video TX whip antenna. I also start out with a perfectly balanced and vibration free heli build. I balance the heli in stages: 1. Remove mail blades, flybar paddles but leave flybar installed and also remove the tail blades -spin up the heli and correct vibrations. Also BALANCE main blades, flybar paddles and tail blades! 2. Repeat above but install flybar paddles 3. repeat above but also install tail blades 4. repeat abov
  4. I had to cut the clip short, the actual flight was about 12 minutes long. I put back 1700mah onto the 2200 3S main battery. I found that eliminating vibrations really helped a lot.
