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.

Miniature Plugs and Sockets

Recommended Posts

USEFUL CONNECTORS:If you get the right pin spacing for these plugs/skts ( and there are quite a few types) you'll find the three way sockets fit Futaba and Hitec receivers as well. Off the top I think the pin spacing is 2.54 (Pitch Pin Headers and Sockets). They start at 2 way and go up to 50 ways (!). Most electronic suppliers should stock them. They are slightly smaller than the normal RC plug and socket but non the less useful for quite a number of jobs.

Wherever you are, just Google FARNELL. You'll see a page with about every country's flag..just click yours (or nearest) and search for connectors & (Pitch Pin Headers and Sockets). You can make sure these p/skts really firmly plugged together by using 6.4mm heatshrink tubing over the pair. I use them a lot when connecting power to model nav/landing lights etc. Works out in the UK about 60 pence a plug and socket. No crimping either. . .(fixed pins)!

They can be seen on for details. (scroll halfway down the page).

Another supplier in the UK is RS. Just Google RS and at the bottom of their intro page click on Worldwide and go from there. For example (USA= Allied Electronics). Both firms have a huge catalogue of electronic items.
