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.

Close-range interference - suggested sources?

Recommended Posts

Okay, so perhaps I should've used a free hand to remove my hat - instead of an aircraft - but viewing this short video :( , can anyone suggest the likely source of the thick black & white band of interference visible in this?

The site is relatively far from civilisation, and you can appreciate just how close the transmitter was.

(My mobile 'phone was on - but I've had it on before & not seen this sort of thing)

Now that's using your head. :)

I would start by eliminating the possible external sources. That would include turning off the cell phone. BTW, if you're using a patch or other directional antenna on the Rx, and the noise occurs mostly when it is pointed away from the model, then the issue might be minimized by aiming the antenna.
