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.

I found this dual axis gyro (IDG-1000) and i'm new to gyros so if anyone could help me understand the specs more that would be helpful. the power supply voltage is 3 volts and it says the zero rate output is 1.23 volts. does this mean when the gyro outputs 1.23 volts that it is not moving. If so then is the voltage range go from 3-0 volts for both axis. the sensitivity is 33mV/degree/sec if i divide this into 3 volts and i get 90 steps. Can i then read this with attiny 26 8 bit microcontroller that will use a timer to control servo motors? If anyone has any better ideas or better gyros and microcontrollers i'm all ears.

Sounds all right.

the sensitivity is 33mV/degree/sec if i divide this into 3 volts and i get 90 steps.

So that's 45°/s full scale in each direction. Fairly low for R/C apps, I determined 300°/s was much preferable.

will an 8 bit micro controller be enough for the 300? or will it be better to read the gyro with a 10 bit micro controller and if so do you guys have any recommendations preferably c code or assembly. also i need a wirless camera with reciver and i see that most of you guys us the kx131 with airwave transmitter and receiver. I'm on a low coast budget, have any of you tested a lower cost set up that can reach 100 feet with a resonable clear picture? thanks

Hi =) so i got some free samples of the idg300 gyro now i just need some cheap boards to put them on. Do any of you guys no where i can find a board the fits a 40 pin QFN package that has leads going out from those 40 pins so i can connect resistors and capacitors. I do not know how to do pcb design. thanks
