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.
We would- but the pixel resolution for most is too small- though 1080p would work- that is 2 MP... Hmmmm....
Thanks for the great advice so far! As for the Sony- do you mean: http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores...#specifications
We are trying to find a way to take high quality (>=2MP) still pictures at relatively high frequencies (1 or 2 per second, on a timer) using a lightweight digital camera mounted on a relatively small RC plane. We are now using a Hobbico Sky Fly 2, which can support a total payload of about 200 g (we think!). We could go to a somewhat larger model, but not too much. Any advice on this would be VERY highly appreciated and acknowledged! This is for an ecological research project. Thanks! -Erle
