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.

A couple months ago I purchased a Geeetech I3 3D printer so I could use PLA and perhaps some of the exotic plastics. I've been using a daVinci 1.0B with DiY spooled ABS (works great); Given the daVinci's ease of use I had no idea that the Geeetech printer was about to kick my butt. But there is a happy ending, so stick around. This is not a 3D printer review. But to set the stage, I purchased this printer kit. Rather than order it from the Chinese factory I found one on eBay from a USA supplier. Cost was under $300 USD delivered to my door. The Geeetech I3 Pro B kit is a Chinese variant of the popular Prusa I3 design. Mine came with a MK8 direct drive extruder with 1.75mm x 0.3mm nozzle, a Sanguinololu 1.3A (Arduino) controller, and four A4988 stepper motor drivers. Assembly took about 6 hours. But getting reliable PLA prints took several weeks of hair pulling. I'm now getting consistently good prints, which is something that I thought was impossible up until a few days ago. So I'm here to share my Geeetech war story. I'll provide details on the extruding problem and how I achieved success. Maybe this will help someone else.
