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. Thank you Mr. RC-Cam, I will try this and post the results
  2. Is there a way to make the servo tester work with 1.9k pots instead of the 5k pots? I am wanting to use the tester with a FrSky replacement gimbal PR10. 1.9k is what I measured , but the box states resistance range is 2.4k ohm. Sorry, I wanted to put this under Rc-Cam Projects
  3. Hi Mr. Rc-Cam, My printer did something goofy on the GP patch template where the 7.00" horizontal is correct but the 9.00" vertical is still a 1/32" weak. So I was wondering if you could verify a couple of dimensions for me? For the bottom plate I scaled that to be 4.24"x4.24"and the top plate at 2.23" horizontal x 2.27" vertical. Thanks for your help! Midwest-Flyer
  4. Thank-you for clearing things up for me Midwest-Flyer
  5. Hi Mr. Rc-Cam, Please forgive me for my ignorance,but on page # 5 of the new installation docs. does pin 4 of the RS-232 port change what it does between the record output and the NMEA output? Or is pin 3 of the Db 9 also a Gnd. ? And am I thinking correctly in that the NMEA sentence output is where you can get GPS data on the fly? Thanks Midwest-Flyer
  6. I do'nt have a 4-pin header so I have to order. So I will send the pic to you this time. I thought time wise it was a horse a piece, but I will have a cable ready for the future Thanks Midwest-Flyer
  7. Hi, I have been using the JR R700 rx for my testing and it has worked well. When the new firmware is released I will be using the RSSI connection Mr Rc-Cam I've been reading through the new docs. This project and product is getting more fun,cool and flexilble as time goes on Thank-you Midwest-Flyer
  8. Hi, These traces are very hard to follow I did get 20k across pin 12 and gnd. On this rx I also got 280 millivolts TX off, .636 volts TX on. It look like pin 12 connects to cap to gnd. and some resistors which are connected to what looks like a transsistor then to an IF can. It looks like the best place to connect to is at the IC.

  9. Hi, I got tired of trying to get the glue out of the way so I opened another rx I had of the same model but different frequency. There was hardly any glue so I was able to trace connetions to pin 12 and found out that it has a ohm reading of 189k between pin 12 and the batt. signal pin but when I checked voltage at the signal pin and gnd I got a 1.3 volt reading that only changed .2 volts when I turned on or off the tx otherwise it stayed a constant 1.3 volts regardless of how far the tx was from the rx. Will this affect how the inspire should be connected? Thanks Midwest-Flyer
  10. I still have alot of glue around the pins of the chip and it doesn't come off very well, so it will take a little time so that I can solder to it. I will try to be connected up to the Gecko sometime this weekend. Thanks Midwest-Flyer April 18 I'm still working on removing the glue so I can solder M-F
