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.
RaWe2008 posted a topic in R/C Wireless Video: General Info, RF Gear, and CamerasHi! I have been looking at the forums here for awhile. So I'm about to take my leap into the VOID! For my flight system I'm using a Futaba 7C 2.4GHz Transmitter with a R617FS Receiver. From the info I've gathered so far, an ideal wireless A/V system should be in the 900mHz frequency range, with 500mW power or more for TX right? My first question is regarding TX power. ie. is there a limit to how much more than 500mW and what are the potential consequences? I have been looking for 900mHz wireless A/V TX/RX sources from around my region (ASIA) but most are 1.2GHz 1.5GHz or 2.4GHz s
