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.

Damage to GPS from RF Transmitter

Recommended Posts

I thought his was damaged when he keyed up his nearby ham radio transceiver. In any case, for model aircraft installations, I recommend watching the GPS satellite count and then find a mounting location where the number does not decrease when the A/V Tx is turned on. With a 500mW Tx, the closest I have ever been able to do that was about 12 inches. Much further is best.

Thanks for your response guys. That is a lot further than I expected. It's actually in relation to an Xbee module and not a video Tx. I was hoping to mount them both on the same board/pcb but we'd be talking only a couple of cm's not 12 inches ! Still have to wait for Sparkfun to get the modules for actual testing, was chasing a ballpark figure.

Thanks again guys.
