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 want to be able to swap the Tx out of my plane and pop in an alternative Tx. So I was looking for a simple lightweight connector plug system. Given that I don't use audio - would using servo leads and connectors be sensible? Or is having such connectors in the middle of cable runs guaranteed to generate some nasty interference side effects?

One thing I haven't seen mentioned on the forum, is that computer headers and strip plugs can be cut into however many pin & sockets you need. These have .1" spacing and are so light they are hard to measure on a gram scale. I tried finding them on Digikey to link to but there are so many plugs and sockets it's mindboggling.

Perhaps the Engineers who populate the forum know of which I speak.
