Attention: RC-CAM.com will permanently shut down on August-08-2021.

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.

RC-Cam'er (2/4)



  1. Hi, I got the TX40 a couple of months ago. I have been flying it with my modified X-UFO 10-20 minutes in total. Today I was going to power it up again after having finished a new pan-tilt setup but it seems to be totally dead. I have measured the current draw and it is only 0,14mA (should be 220mA). Anyone experienced this? I do not want to remove the wrapping to measure the voltage regulator yet before I have checked with Kilrah regarding warranty. I was really happy with this cam. Great quality as long as it worked Fits perfect to the small X-UFO as well....
  2. Hi, The component-out connector looks like the A/V-connector on the GR-D290.
  3. I bought a JVC GR-D290E today which I will use for video capturing since my Panasonic NVG400 doesn't match with the KX131 and KX141. I got the cam for less than half price since it is a demo model. When I got home I discovered that there is no AV-cable included. The AV connector on the cam is flat almost like a USB connector. Anyone knows the name of this cable or where I can get a new one?
  4. Quality is important... If it wasn't I could replace the KX141 for a "cheaper" model and that way I could use the Pansonic cam. Actually, I will look for another brand of CCD 1/3" cam. It makes more sense to me swapping the small cam causing the trouble than replacing the camcorder (since I only can find a/v inputs on the more expensive models of camcorders).
  5. Anyone tried ARCHOS PMP AV700 Mobile Digital Video Recorder? Maybe this could be an alternative when replacing my NV-GS400.
  6. I also switched the rx and the same lines appeared. I will try another cam tonight and see if this makes a difference. To bad if Panasonic is incompatible with Panasonic . By the way, there was a resistor included with my KX141 but I have found no instructions for this cam. Anybody knows where I should use it?
  7. I hope I don't have to invest in a new camcorder. Is there any other ccd-cameras that match the KX-series?
  8. I am currently setting up a KX-141 cam, BWAV 500mW TX and RX. I use a Panasonic NV-GS400 for recording and my challenge is to get rid of the red/green lines that appear on the cam-monitor. These do not show up when using the television. Also, using the same RX but a smaller 10mW cam/tx the picture is nice on the Panasonic. I have read about these issues when matching KX-131 with the NV-GS400 and but not about any solutions yet. Anyone have any suggestions how to overcome the red/green lines? I would rather swap the KX-141 than the NV-GS400 (due to cost... )
  9. Thanks for your replies guys! I actually sold my Royal Evo9 now and have ordered the Futaba 9C. I love the Multiplex radio but in this case I have higher priority on making the headtracker work smoothly (also, it doesn't seems like Multiplex will release any 2,4GHz tx modules soon, as Futaba will. No, I will not use 2,4GHz when using my video equipment )
  10. Hi, I am going to get a head tracking unit but for now I only have a Multiplex Royal Evo9 radio. It seems like the units I have found only operate with Futaba radios. Anyone knows if there are any units that work with Multiplex? I have to check this out before I swap my 6 months old radio for a new one..... Thanks!
  11. Beachyfrancois, Your videos are great. I really like how the motornacelles appear as you pan the camera. Could you please tell me more about your set up, especially the head tracker? Is it your own design or is it comercial?
  12. I am currently using about 15" of separation but this doesn't help a lot. The rc rx is not shielded at the moment (emi penetrates shielding???) The "antenna down" range with the 15" separation is about 90-100ft....but it should really be 150ft +. The radio tx is a JR 9303 and the rx is a JR R770S. The rc antenna is routed along leading edge of wing and the 900MHz antenna is positioned vertically in aft of the fuselage. Does anyone know the relationship between antenna down range and extended antenna range? I don't have a photo of the setup at the moment. Thanks
  13. I have a problem with a 900MHz tx/rx operating on 1watt very close to a JR 72MHz rx (PCM). The range of the JR rx is degraded significantly due to EMI from the 900MHz system (30ft with antenna down on ground test). Since both radios have to go into a 60 size trainer the separation between components is limited. Is there an effective way of "shielding" the 72MHz rx from the 900MHz system? Should I wrap the 900MHz device in copper entirely ? Thanks
  14. is it still possible to order the MAHI?
