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.



My new FPV ground station and first flight with new OSD


Recommended Posts

I have just finished my new ground station. I found out it was much better controlling the plane from my room due to multiple reasons:

- I don't have to carry all my gear to the field

- I can use monitors instead of googles - the sun shining into the monitor is

no longer a problem

- I can sit on my chair - much better comfort

Enough talking, here is some pictures:

This is my latest video. This flight was really nerve-wrecking! ;)

The TSII will be a much more stable platform with pan/tilt and a CPD4 for extra stabilisation.

Hope you like it!

Well, I was expecting someone would mention that. At first I'll say I wouldn't have done this with a bigger plane, and the only reason I did it was because I find the plane pretty harmless. It is a very slow and lightweight plane, but I can agree it was a little bit on the edge if I knew I was going to get these problems - which was not expected at all.

My future plans is to make a rudder-home system, so this would probably not happen again. I will also fly in the opposite direction, which is over a forest.

Yeah I wouldn't worry too much about crashing into someones house or yard, my real fear is crashing into a roadway with vehicles and causing an accident. May want a remote "self destruct" device to burn any personally identifying materials. (that was a joke btw)
