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.

Hello all,

I receive a receiver with AWM634 RX module, when I check it, it have a cracked component (see photo attached).

Someone can lead me to the right component?

I want to replace it and recover the receiver, but don't know what to buy.

Thanks for your help

It's the ceramic filter for the audio. If you don't need both audio channels then perhaps removing it will be the only thing you have to do.

Besides the audio channel, could this shut down the receiver?

Thanks for your promptly reply.

It's a 6MHz ceramic resonator (3 pin type with internal caps)

There is a difference between ceramic resonators and filters. Resonators are used in places like where an economy xtal might be needed. Filters are used in A/V systems as traps, discriminators, and so forth. They both often look the same.

Yep, you're right,...looks like these ones already incorporate 2x20pf capacitors,...., so it would be better to use it as a clock resonator !

thanks
