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.

Great site! I found you guys after countless hours of searching for a wireless video feeds for my custom application. I'm looking for expert advice to help get me pointed in the right direction.

I'm working on rigging up a wireless video feed in a slighty unorthodox manner. I built a custom RC controlled dolly and strapped a full size consumer size 3 CCD camera to it. The whole rig travels down a zip line (approx 200 to 300 feet) and in order to see if the action is in the frame, I need to be able to see the actual video coming out the camera (I already have a battery powered LCD monitor that I can use for viewing).

I found the following Trans/Rec and was wondering if anyone has had experience with this manufacuter or model?

Matco 2.4 GHz 8 Ch Wireless A/V Transmitter [ASK-2008T] & Receiver [ASK-2008R]

Thanks Terry!

I decided to roll the dice with the Matco. I guess we'll see what I end up with tomorrow.

Does it seems like a lot of the video/audio wireless components sold on the web are very similar, but often RE-branded for different websites..? While searching I found an $400 difference between 2 recvs that look identical.. they even had the same mW rating.

Sometimes yes, sometimes no.

There are some known manufacturers who have their gear sold by many companies. But as a lot of the gear comes from China, and the Chinese love to copy each other, there will also be totally similar looking devices made by different companies, not always with the same price and quality/performance regardless of the published specs.
