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 don't know if anyone else is flying canards FPV, but I fly a Long-EZ .46 (gas) plane with a camera up front. I also built an electric-powered foamie canard (from scratch) of a similar design with a 40" wing span. My little electric canard gets as slow as you can imagine and handles wind impressively well (I've taken it out with 15 and 20mph gusts). Anyway, I just thought I'd give my 2 cents. Maybe something like this would be up your alley: http://hobby4less.com/long-ez380-electric-...21c99940a2f79ec From my experience, canard models tend to be very pitch stable (smooth pitching, hard to stall), but you have to be careful on the yaw - meaning, make sure you have enough fin area on the wing tips. If you get jerky with the sticks, they tend to wobble a little on the yaw axis. But I like 'em... good luck on whatever you come up with.
I noticed that the Rvision-D (and similar: FutureHobbies FH630, etc.) have a 3D (L/R) setting on the remote, and RangeVideo's ad says "3D display is a now a standard feature with Rvision goggles." Does anyone know how to take advantage of the stereoscopic 3D effect with these goggles? Will it somehow take two different video inputs? I'd like to get two cameras going for stereo vision (despite the posts that suggest it's more hassle than it's worth). Any insight on this is much appreciated.
