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.

  1. the dark side is starting to look at those ariels you see outside some shops in a whole new light but i must resist at least till i see a place that is closed down lol on another note would a tv ariel operate on the same frequency? or in other words what else could i use instead of a patch? i would love to have a reliable system to play with for when i emagrate to the U,S
  2. wow that's abit stiff yet amazon UK and ebay UK seen to sell loads of 900mhz security cameras a few year back even seemed like it was the only frequency on the market for ages and then they started selling 2.4ghz as well and i thought they were just jumping on the 2.4 bandwagon just so they could sell the same cameras at a higher price with all that in mind i was thinking that if i were to use the cameras with on board 10mw 900mhz TX's that don't seem to broadcast very far and a goof proof patch i would hopefully be able to pick up a good signal from around 500meters away say? is that feasible please? and for legal purposes could you tell me in newb terms what i should be using instead please? my models all run on 2.4ghz heli's use spektrum ar7000 RX's and planes use Futaba FASST with (r607??) RX's im an ideal world i would really like to fly my models to the edge of the range of my rc gear or maybe have video picture start to break up just before my radio gear starts glitching so to speak hope that all makes sense but if i am thinking anything wrong here please correct me btw thank you for all replies so far GREAT INFO AND HELP cheers
  3. thanx for the info Terry mate ive gathered as much since posting the original message but i live in remote location withloads of emtpy space around me
  4. yes it is just out of curiosity what would be the penalty if you were caught using 900mgz in the UK please? i come from a background where i taught myself to fly, never had an instructor or joined any flying club, not insured at all, but all around me is farmers fields so i fly out in the open by myself most of the time. my trex 500 setup has a 200mw 900mhz range video tx, ive had a 3dbi antenna on the heli in the past with good results but ended up putting the 3dbi on the reciever, im interested in having a pair 900mhz patch antennas so that a friend and myself can race our rc trucks from his car on a bmx track out in the middle of nowhere that looks perfect for FPV racing (though high speeds might notbe the actual order of the day as 5mph on the ground looks pretty fast through goggles lol) that said i have had police come up to me twice in the 3yrs that i have been playing around with FPV equipment and what frequency i was broadcasting on didnt even come up in conversation,
  5. i really like it but im a total newb lol so is there any chance you could make a few of them and ship them to the UK at a reasonable fee? t,i,a
  6. can anyone in the uk make a couple of the cheapy 900mhz patch antennas and sell them to me please? i need better range heres more info on the frre patch antenna build that i was thinking of goof proof free patch antenna thank you
  7. very nice mate now how much would that cost to make and ship to the u,k? im totally useless at making things like this but could really do with one if you can help please or even point me inthe direction of someone who could make the antenna for me over here? t,i,a
  8. they make usb recievers now mate dunno if this info is abit late now though lol
  9. being a total newb can someone please explain to me what would be wrong with just using a 2 to 1 phono splitter cable please?
  10. i use that setup on my blade 400 mate so couple of inches apart is working fine for me blade 400 AVP FPV setup
