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.

ok, im following rc-cam's instructions for the gp patch antenna. the problem is that the receiver that i have does not use the standard SMA connection for the antenna. someone at radioshack (while i was looking for the part) said it might be a sub-BNC or miniBNC connection or something. anyone have any ideas as to what it might be and where i can get the appropriate part for it? (pcb mount)

if anyone needs any more pics for size reference or something i can take them.


(Any other tips on building this patch antenna are also welcome)

the measurement scale is milimeters (the numbers) and the smallest tick marks are .5mm

i was looking in radioshack and all of the sma connecters looked too big. i have seen the normal sma connections before, but this is definitely smaller.

could it be a TNC connection?

ok, so if it is an SMA (which that spec sheet and a caliper seem to prove) then what radioshack part number should i be looking for? i searched their website and only 2 hits came up, one of which was an SMA-TNC adaptor. am i going to have to special order this from online somewhere? remember it needs to be pcb mounted
