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 was announced several months ago (March 2021) to allow our members ample 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.

Upgrading my cheap Hong Kong Import CAM/TX

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I have been working on a project putting fpv on a trex 450 and I need to make everything as light as possible. :)

I am going to use a 11.1v battery to power the heli and the camera/tx I have a 2.4 ghz import but according to the 1.2 ghz system here http://www.rc-cam.com/hk_video.htm the tx needs 8v and the camera needs 5v. I have ordered a sony 1/3" CCD to supercharge the video quality but it requires 12v instead of 5v so I need help.

I thought about puting in a 8v regulator and letting the camera have the 12VDC (11.1v) direct.

But something simple has confused me are the positive and negative wires carried in one where they go into the camera and tx, here http://www.rc-cam.com/imagehkv/cam_rf2a.jpgand also does the regulator (5v?) step down the 9V input into two seperate voltages here http://www.rc-cam.com/imagehkv/vreg1a.jpg is that possible? :o

Any help will be really appreciated thanks. ;)
