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.

I am in the process of building a ground station and have just about finished it. The only thing that I will be missing is the sofware to run it. Currently I use the tiny track SMT and soundcard for the packet data along with the UI-view program.

I am looking for a software program that has the gauge dashboard like VisualGPSXP(This program does not work with sound card) and that also incorporate the software for the tracking antenna.

I have spent numerous hours looking but am unable to find anything.

Last resort I have a programmer at work that is willing to help me out but he is pretty busy and this may take a while.

If anyone could help out it would be greatly appreciated or advise were I can find information or source codes for gauges etc.

I use the tiny track smt in my plane to transmitt data back to the camera receiver via the audio channel. At the camera receiver the audio channel wires into the mic jack on my laptop. I then use packet engine pro to convert the packet data on the audio channel throught the sound card. Then I use UI-View to display my location on a moving map.




Hope this answers your question

Crash Pilot,

I have VisualGPSXP and it certainly looks great. Do know that the virtual horizon is a non-functional part of the software. I was really excited to see this feature operate from GPS data and then sad to learn that it is a future addition.

Since I use a radio modem, I cannot comment on how exactly to solve your problem, but Fransen GPS Gate may be of some help. This feeds NMEA data to virtual comm ports from various sources. If it can accept the data from your sound card application, it maybe able to feed VisualGPSXP.

Good luck with it and let us know how it goes.

I did not try this out because I had to take a break due to work committments. I have just started getting stuck back into it so I will give it a try. One of the programmers from work has just started working on writing some software for me. We are currently at the stage of trying to read the data dirrect from the soundcard and then we can create the dashboard and tracking software.

I will keep you posted
