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.

Servos and gyro for a camera gimbal

What kind of servos and gyro combination for a camera gimbal

Why does everybody use Futaba S3003

Some help please

Personally I'd use HiTek digital servos - what kind depends on the camera mount and the weight of camera. Ideally you should also convert them to use toothed belt rather than gears as the action is smoother.

Futaba gyros work well out of the box - GY 401 single axis or possibly GY 352 dual axis - but if you're really serious I'd recommend CSM SL 720 gyros. They are highly programmable with an easy to use Windows interface and you can set them up just the way yoiu want them. Cheapest place for them is probably www.aerialsystems.biz (UK based)

Good luck!
