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. Hello again, I have borrowed a Futaba 7C (2.4Ghz) with a R617FS RX. Is it possible for you to confirm my connections to the PPM? I am just not sure about which is the last logical channel on the receiver. I think all other connections are OK. using the Futaba TX with the Dammar controller should solve all issues with channel order. (I hope) Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi Richard, Is this board the same as seen on the Lipoly.de site? Is this comment related to post#293? - because I took a second screen grab of the scope which I thought displayed all channels correctly. The Mikrokopter board was my first choice but unfortunately the European Xchange rate was rather prohibitive so I took the cheaper option. Hopefully it will all work out. Since this purchase I have been working Arduino chips and I plan to develop my next Quad around the Arduino with my own software but this may take some time due to the inconvenience of having to earn a livi
  3. I will email Mike Dammar regarding the controller software. Hopefully he will be able to help with his own product. I am very close to connecting up all motors and beginning testing. I just want to make sure that I have covered all preparatory issues first. Thanks again.
  4. OK. I have looked all over the spectrolutions website for any software to perform channel assginment without success. I hope Brashley might be able to help here. Hope the attached scan is more like what you would expect. I'll wait for Brashley's input here. Thanks.
  5. Hi Brashley/Mr RC-Cam, Could you please comment on the following if possible: I completed the connections from the AR6100 to the PPM converter and plugged it into the Flt CTr PWB for a cold test (no ESCs connected). I then took a screen grab of the oscilloscope (which was not easy since I had no reference to trigger from) and I have included the pic for you to evaluate and hopefully confirm as correct. 1 When i connect power to the PWB - the LED on the PPM converter lights up then goes off. 2 On the PWB - the red LED appears to strobe somewhat. I am not sure whether this
  6. OK. Just so I am clear about this. Controller board - This is the PWB from spectrolutions? If this is in fact the case then I do not have the necessary software tools and will set about finding these so that I can do the channel reasignment. Otherwise I will be relying on the PWB's interpretation of the pulse train sequence as received from the PPM converter. Does this make sense to you?
  7. I am using Mike Dammar's PWB (from spectrolutions) - I am not aware of any software. Thanks
  8. Hello again....got back to working on the PPM converter after some unavoidable work. With respect to the quote above. I am not sure if i have missed something here but exactly what were you refering to when you mentioned "MK setup software" - is this some program I should download or were you refering to the usual transmitter model configuration settings?
  9. Thanks Brashley, Found an interesting experiment here - http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=783753 While the results appear to reveal a difference in range of about 20-25%, I would not use these results as a reference since conditions can change dramatically. The conclusions were that the 7000 had a (straight line) range of about 2.8 miles and the 6100 about 2.2...hmm. All I want for range is about half a mile. After that I can't discern orientation so the whole game becomes a case of sheer luck anyway! I suppose I could get someone to monitor the orientation with a spott
  10. All the more credit to you for helping out with this challenge. Your selfless actions are an inspiration to me. I hope I can be of service at some point.
  11. Thanks to you too for your fine work with the PPM converter! I can live with crossing over a channel...its a small price to pay for using the 6100. Do you see any advantage with using the 7000? Is there a benefit to using the second module apart from the obvious?
  12. Thank you so much!!! I will work on this over the weekend and will post my results on Sunday. Wheeee!!! (Hopefully)
  13. Great News!!! Thanks for that. I will change the + & - wiring for the 6100 to the auxiliary pads as advised. Does this mean: Aux - 6 Gear - 5 Rud - 4 Ele - 3 Aile - 2 Thr - 1 (jumper applied here) Will look at changing the header end-pins to a 6 pin end-receptacle, sounds like a great idea. Can you tell me where I should check with an scilloscope for the processed ppm? The diag says J1-3...I must be missing the board ref as i cannot find this. Will report after the next test. Thank you
