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.

Show Us Your Fpv Platform!

That is pretty cool.

I found the Little Bird and the pilot and my favorite scalemodel shop..


The scale is 1:18; other helmets in this scale may fit, too.

Mine was from the 1/6th scale version which I found out they stop making. E-Bay time. Here's a link that I found while googling 21st Century Ultimate Soldier Collection.

Man, I have to say that the T-28 is really a nice plane to FPV. This foam version is a Bind N fly needing only a receiver and the FPV gear. It handles the weight just fine. They are available at a lot of hobby shops being a ParkZone. It doesn't need any mods to the stock running gear. It's less than $200 and can get airborne pretty quick from the box. It already has a BL motor and the stock speed controller is rated for 3s and 4s. I use a 2500 3s with great success but a heavier cam may tolerate a 4s concerning the CofG. NOTE Using additional servos for Pan and Tilt require the user to disable the BEC. No problem with the OSD but watch your timers. You can also use an external BEC. The stock airplane is already at it's max servo count for digital servo's using the BEC.

I will add that my P/T canopy shed its factory paint which had the velcro attached to it. No problem, I simply stripped the rest of the rubbery paint and the sticky velcro stuck to the bare foam very well. I test pulled a small section under the canopy and it pulled the outer skin off the foam with effort. The other canopys paint is still in tack. Maybe it was left over mold release or moisture getting under the paint. I'm not sure but it's a good idea to double check before you stick something to the painted surfaces.

Off to shoot some videos! My firewire cable cam in. I'll post them as soon as I can. I have to figure out how to work Vista's movie maker. :huh:

It's pretty roomy indeed, some pics of mine:






It's a lovely plane to fly, very stable and jet-like feeling. I just need to change my motor as I think I got a bad copy and the axle isn't perfectly straight and will vibrate at some RPMs, which is pretty annoying as the plane would otherwise be VERY smooth.
