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. Doh! sorry my bad actualy. I see that on the RCFS the output is high with a valid signal. That will work great.
  2. They are all great but I need an active output when the servo signal is there. All of these have an active output when the signal is not there.

    LMA ?

    I have an odd request. Is it possible to change the state of the lost model alarm, so it outputs as long as there is a signal and turns off when there is no signal. What I want to do is use the output to hold a relay energized as long as the RX is working and if it looses signal or power it would drop the relay. The reason I need this is the relay will connect to the Kill wire on a Gas motor in a boat. That way if I loose power or signal it will kill the motor. I had a battery pack fail at a race in Las Vegas two years ago and destroyed a boat that hit a concrete wall.
  4. I know that I must be doing something wrong as I have built the BitSwitch, PanCam,CamMan, and the RCFS v1 and they all worked flawlessly. I program up the 12F683 it programs and passes the verification. I have tripple checked the configuration word and it is 100 Internal R/c Oscilator 0 WDT off 0 PWRTE ON 0 MCLRE off 1 CP off 1 CDP off 11 BODEN BOD enabled SODEN disabled 1 IESO on 1 FCMEM on when I power up I get one blink on then after about a second It comes on solid. I have no servo contol. The program button has no affect , the LED just sta
  5. First of all thanks for sharing your work with us non code types. Is there a posibility of a Bit-Switch that the user can set the switching points? I have a use that I would like to set a pulse width range that the output is active.
  6. Thanks, I just dug out my JDM 2 serial port programer ,Then downloaded a copy of WIN PIC Programmer and programmed up a 12F509 with Pan Cam. Then I made a little adapter socket for the old JDM and programmed up 10F202 and 10F206 with your bit-switch. That Bit switch is one handy bit of code. Thanks for making this stuff available.
  7. Will RC Cam man projects code for the 12C508 and 12C509 work with the 12F508 and 12F509?
  8. Bill, here is a link to the one I use now. It is not PIC based but just a simple dual flipflop based design . Glow driver switch Thanks for all the interest in my question. While I have been a communications technician for 20 years+ I am a real novice at PIC stuff. I did make a PC board and built a simple JDM style PIC programmer. I have no idea how to do anything at this point other that burn someone elses HEX code into them. I use IC-PROG. I would love to learn how to take an assembly program and get it into the HEX. I asume I need some kind of compiler program to do that. This may not b
  9. After reading my original post I can see where I may have not worded it right. I have no intent to violate any use agreenments of MR. RC-CAMS codes. I have used your code to build a camera switch and would never want to modify any of your code . I apreciate you sharing with all of us and would never want to jepodize that. Thanks for all you work.
  10. I have the need to switch a glow plug on at anything below about 1/3rd throttle. I thought the Pan Cam code may work but using the AUX output it chages state at a bit too high of throttle setting. What I would like to do is use a PIC to drive something along the lines of an IRFZ42 to turn on a glow plug at low throttle to improve idle. I have built one of these using an MC14013 but was hoping to find a cleaner way to do it. ANy ideas? Thanks.
