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. I know the owner of the station, Mr. Jones, very well. In fact, : "Mr. Jones and me look into the future yeah we stare at the beautiful women "She's looking at you. Uh, I don't think so. She's looking at me." Standing in the spotlight I bought myself a gray guitar When everybody loves me, I will never be lonely". This is what Vegemite will do to you people!

  2. How 'bout this little puppy? http://www.sanav.com/gps_engine_board/FV-M7_FV-M11.htm 32 channels / 5HZ / external MMCX connector? about $90 MSRP. Docphi Awasome job man! so you managed to hack the 6 pin EM406 connector to work with this module? Mr.Rc-Cam Any chance you will integrate compatibility with the ETEK 5 HZ in all your Inspire modules as default? I think many people would be happy to see this 5hz module for sale at the inspire page ! Gizmo
  3. You are bringing up a very good point, Thomas. The thread I was refering to was aimed at making a much more accurate and sensitive receiver than the one supplied by the vendors that sell that specific brand name. Somebody also made a comment like: "These receivers were tuned simply by getting a video picture on the screen and hearing a hiss on the audio channel" The receivers I was looking at were: http://cgi.ebay.com/High-quality-915-MHz-A...tem140067115283 http://cgi.ebay.com/High-quality-1-2-GHz-A...tem140067137976 http://cgi.ebay.com/Highly-sensitive-2-4GH...tem140098320047 Any id
  4. Docphi, Do you have a schematic on how you used the harvested supercap? I am faced by the same issues Thanks, Gizmo
  5. Hello people, Rcuniverse has a thread about converting "our" normal receivers to receive 900mhz to 2.4ghz: QUOTE As I had stated in an earlier post, I have been building a universal video receiver. It is based on the control board sold by http://www.radio-kits.co.uk/ Using 2 law-mate receivers and an antenna divider rated at 2.5 GHz I am able to tune in all of the 900, 1.2 and 2.4 GHz bands from one unit. END QUOTE Anyone know how this can be done and/or have a schematic? Buying three different receivers from Mobi Comm is out of my budget ... Thanks in advance, Gizmo
  6. I know a guy that sells cx-161's by the bucket. Might give him a buzz: http://www.hicam.com.au/pana.htm Gizmo

  11. Hi!. With 2.4 ghz you are risking interferences from computer WiFi networks and telephone sets. If you live anywhere that is not Siberia or Namibia, this will create problems, and certainly not smooth video. It is better to use an electric helicopter. It has less vibration and absolutely no fuel fumes! . Any 2.4 ghz transmitting equipment that transmitts more than 1mw (this is very little) requires a HAM licence. (at least in the USA). A good quality and high resolution CCD board camera: http://www.cctvtoolbox.co.za/display_product_2237.htm Another good quality camera: http://www.black
  12. Dear Mr.RC-Cam, If you are making a PAL version sign me up too for an order. Let me know if you need any more PAL CMOS cameras as I have a new unopened color one that I can exchange for a programmed PIC of your choice. Gizmo
  13. Worlok, What you need is a DC-DC converter. You can even power your transmitter from one Lipoly battery! You can use a 2000ma 3.7V lipoly and have a 3.7v to 12v voltage booster! Here's a link to a commercial site: http://www.cctvtoolbox.co.za/display_product_2247.htm A 8db patch should double you range. (I assume you have the whip antenna now). I've heared of people with a 600mw TX and a patch achieve ranges in the miles(!!!). Hope this helps! Let me know, Gizmointheskywithdiamonds
