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 still working on my Raptor Cam but I have a few pictures of the progress so far if anyone is interested.


I am currently waiting on my DC-DC converter to arrive as well as the GP-KX121 cables. I was in Las Vegas over the weekend at one of my companies Aircraft Service Facilities, I got lucky and found a couple of feet of RG174 and RG 178 coax.

It appears that we use this type of cable on our Gulfstreams!. FREEBIE!!!

Only thing is I found that the RG174 is easier to work with than the RG 178.

Also I have a question to the length of the final antenna, I looked at the link on the RC-CAM site and found that the 4 inch long seemed to be recommended?

If not I have enough cable to make a couple more if I need but it sure would be nice to get a definate answer on the lenght.....
