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.

Helicopter Crash Video.

Years ago I saw this horrifying video. Came across it again on YouTube. Still gives me the shivers.


Keep in mind the pilot did NOT know how to fly the helicopter. He had just bought it and decided he would try it out. I believe he had his fixed wing license at the time.

Old bold pilots don't last too long, guess that might apply to dumb ones as well....

I feel no pity...

Thanks for the link. I hadn't seen that one...

As someone who worked in Air Traffic as a Flight Briefing Officer, I had pinned on my office wall a notice for all to see.

Flying in itself is not inherently dangerous...it is however..terribly unforgiving of negligence and stupidity!

A few aeromodellers I know could well take note of this!! :P
