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.

If some of you have not seen how stable the Cularis is as an FPV platform, I invite you to take a look at this video I did. I am using a OEMCameras.com RHPC-2000 camera with a 500mW lawmate Tx. Video is recieved by one of the first Black Widow AV diversity recievers made by Matt Klarich. Attached to this are two 8db circular polarized patches. Also recieving video is a Lawmate video Rx with a high gain omni from HyperLink Technologies. Finally, a DPCAV diversity reciever chooses between the Black Widow and the Lawmate. Video is then pumped to a DPCAV video distribution amp and then to a flat screen TV, video goggles and a Panasonic PV-GS400 camcorder. Video is then copied via firewire to an old PC where minimal editing occured. Essentially a sound track was added along with some titles. The Cularis is powered by an Axi2820/12, a CC ThunderBird 36 and 4S A123 pack. The video portion is powered by a 4 cell NiMh AAA pack of 700mAh capacity. Thank you to many of you who have helped me with all my questions, I could not have done anything without all of your help.
