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.
I'll give it a try and see what happens. My modules arrived today and I have the power supply/ adapter PCB designed to fit them. I'll build the PCBs over the weekend. Hopefully the brass will arrive in the next couple of days. I'll post a pic once I have one built.
Thanks. I would rather not do that because it would be a lot neater to mount the module directly to the patch. Looks like the only way I am going to find out is to try it...
Hi, I am thinking of building a diversity system based on Airwave 625 RX modules and GP patch antennas. To keep RF losses to a minimum I would like to mount each module directly on the back of the antenna. The plan is to glue the module to the back of the antenna and directly wire it without any connectors. Instead of an SMA connector there will simply be a very short wire going from the module PCB, through the hole where the SMA connector should be, to the driven element. The grounds will also be connected directly to the reflector. Looking at the drawings of the Airwave modules there appe
