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 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.

Perhaps you've noticed the growing popularity of personal live streaming video channels. Thanks to YouTube and some connected webcams there's plenty of romping kittens, wilderness animals, and vacation beaches to watch in real-time. My interest in video camera projects isn't just FPV/drone related and it was only natural for me to get on the live stream bandwagon. That is to say, now our family pet turtle (named Polly) has the starring role on a reptile's version of The Truman Show. Family and friends can now spy on Polly-the-turtle whenever they want. Here's a YouTube video from the PollyCam webcam: (Click Image Below) Being a DiY guy, I rolled up my sleeves and built my own video streaming system called PollyCam. The project's hardware (WiFi IP camera & video encoder) is under $150 US and the software is free. A reliable broadband internet connection with a generous monthly data usage plan is needed too. In case any of you are interested in the technical aspects of this project then you're in luck. Stick around and I'll do my best to explain how to build it.
