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.

Hello, Have anyone tryed 3-4 TX on their UAV? Problems? E.g. 3 500-2000mW video TX, 1 gps antenna and 40/72MHz RC Problems with gps antenna ? (saturation) Can I find video TX on the marked who send 3-4 channels in one freq. ?
No, not the KX131, but another pcb cam. I thought I had blown that cam and I was in a rather bad mood for a day, when I decided to study the design of it in order to repair it. I`m a electro engineer, so I guess that help me abit I studied the parts on the cam and found the voltage regulator. If a parts is caled ex: LM7405, just type it in google and see what you find. The voltage regulator in my pcb camera was SMD, e.g a very little voltage regulator. I soldered it of and replaced it with a standard size voltage regulator with some leads, since i didnt have the SMD regulator at hand. The voltage regulator, often a tre pin device: Ground, voltage in and voltage out. It is often located nearby supply leads. It is worth a try. What do you have to loose A first step can be to hook it up to supply voltage and measure voltages across the voltage regulator.
Hello, Probably, the voltage regulator is blown. This is a simple device. If you are good in soldering, you can solder it off and replace it with a new one. If you are luck, this is the only component that is broken. Saved me one time Tips: Get the datasheet for the blown component and study it Look for defect components on the pcb and try to replace.
