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.



Top R/C-Gun AWS Misfiring

First of all, I must say, I love the Top R/C-Gun AWS. I've prchased severall PNP units and am very happy with them!

However.......I have a Sryker with a BP21 brushless motor that keeps triggering my "gun" with a strike. I have the full throttle firing option setup (so the gun fires at full throttle), and that works fine, but sometimes when I make a downwind turn at top speed the prop must hit a pitch that triggers as a hit. I can be flying by myself and get hit 4 or 5 times on a flight. I know I'm a great shot B) but I don't want to shoot myself!

Has anyone else had this experience? Is there a fix for it?

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Dan

This issue has been reported before. It is indeed caused by the audible noise from the prop and/or brushless motor. First thing to try is to experiment with the mounting location of the SCM. If that does not work out then try a different prop.

Please report back on your results.

I know this is late but......I relocated the sonic combat module underneath the Stryker and about 6" forward of the factory location.

I had to move my battery (a 3s 2100 mAh lipo) as far back as it would go in the battery compartment, but the module is working fine now.

No misfire issues at all!

Thanks again!

Dan
