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.



Brushless Computer Fan


Recommended Posts

Sorry Guys this is a bit off the RC Topic and I sure could use your help.

I am trying to get this computer fan to run off a 12 volt battery.

I connect the positive (red) and negative (Black) to a battery but nothing happens. It also has a blue wire which I think is for RPM sensor or PWM.

I am trying to use this as a cooling (Radiator) fan for a motor bike.

If anyone could help I would sure appreciate it.

Thanks

Either the battery cannot supply the required current or the fan is defective.

I'd suspect the battery first. However, if there was any chance the fan's power leads were connected in reverse, even for a second, then the fan is probably toast.

Thanks for reponding guys

The battery is a 6ah lead acid. The bikes electric start works off it so the battery must be O.K. The fan draws 3.5 amps.

I ordered 2 fans and they are both brand new. I made sure the polarity was definate right. I could understand if one was faulty but not two brand new motors.

These are called drastic airflow fans and will produce plenty of air flow. As for being waterproof others have used computer fans (Just not this model) for this situation because they are the only fans that will fit these bikes. They seem to last O.K

This has me beat
