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.

Stripping ls70 panasonic

Recommended Posts

Been thinking about this the last two days... I've stripped back casing, top casing and lcd off a panasonic ls70 and wondering if I can't go further... here's my idea.

What if I striped camera of all but necessary components. Full body, lcd, cap for flash, flash, batt compartment all gone, then lightly ca glue thing to how it would be setup if it were encased. Then make a box about same size, jam camera in and fill box with high density foam that's used for house. Would the foam build up some sort of static electricity and wreak components? Just thinking it would be A. more durable, b. light and a good replacement for my kx171, as well as on board recording so no drops.

Ideas? Suggestions... ^_^

It's not static that would concern me. I would be more worried about the out-gassing chemicals causing damage to the lens, imager, or switches.

The safest solution is to skip the expanding insulation foam idea. If you try it, use a very small amount at a time, along with lots of ventilation during the cure. And don't power the camera until the foam is FULLY cured.

You can always start with a cheap camera and see if the concept is a success.
