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. Yes Im not limited by the number of wires I can use. Well I will start buying some stuff and get started with it.
  2. Yes I will be sending video back to the surface. I will also send power to the camera. I send video over a 24 gauge two conductor with sheild wire. I send the 12volts over a 16 gauge 3 conductor wire. All works fine over the 100ft distance I use right now with my none panning camera system. I guess I will want to send the pulses for each servo over their own wires. How many wires does it take for each servo. looks like two. This joystick box servo city makes looks like it might be a cool thing to use. The recorder box might be all I would need and would enable me to pan any amount I wan
  3. I see where servo city also has a nice Pan-Tilt base for servos to use. Its heavier duty then I need but its not that big and I could use it looks like in a Dome. http://www.servocity.com/html/spt200_pan___tilt_system.html I found a place for for nice domes of all sizes loks like I can use too. http://www.cleardomes.com/domes.htm?OVRAW=...WID=18111713522 I see on the recorder box each servo wire plugs into it. Would I have to have two wires for each servo going down to them. I guess I will have only two servos Pan and Tilt in the unit. I can't think of any other uses for more servos f
  4. Has anyone used the servo signal emulators to control the servos over hard wire. I want to control panning camera on 100ft hard wire in my underwater camera housing. Has anyone controlled servos over hard wire. Not going to use a R/C receiver. Im wiring direct to servos that will pan the camera on the 100ft cable. How can this be done? I see that www.dpcav.com has a signal emulator (#MX8330).. I see servo city has some hardware to control servos directly just by turning a knob and the servo will turn while I turn the knob on their servo recorder. Looks like their software can pro
  5. Digital compass caught my eye. Ive been thinking of have the ability to know where my underwater camera is pointing when I put it over the side of the boat up to 100ft down. It would be nice to know where N,S,E,W is and whee my camera is pointing in relation to them. Is that possible with things you have seen. This would have to work over wire cable going down to the camera. Then send the data up to the surface to be superimposed on the video, genlocked or just displayed on another small screen. The head controll for my underwater camera would be cool but the radio signal would never ma
  6. I wonder if a servo would be the thing to use for panning a camera in my waterproof housing for underwater use 100ft down the cable. Can it go 100ft over the cabe? Is the servo better to use and smother then a stepper motor? I would like to be able to pan left and right up to 180 degrees from center. Have a manual mode and a auto pan mode. Can I do it with servos and the right contoller curcuit. Is there software out there so I can make my own sequences.. I would like to run it from a contol box, not a computer. The power would be 12 volts on the boat. Thanks
