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.



Confused about FCC part 15 antenna connectors


Recommended Posts

I understand that FCC part 15 insists that a non-standard TX antenna connector is used. Does the same apply to the RX antenna? I've read the FCC blurb over and over again, but I can't see much mention of the RX antenna connector.

Also I see quite a few posts where it is recommended not to use coax cable to connect the RX antenna to the RX module. Would this apply with a 415MHz (or 433MHz) system? I'm using 10cm of cable.

Many thanks.

When operating under FCC Part 15 rules you are free to use whatever Rx antenna connector you wish.

10cm of coax that is rated for the application and properly terminated low loss RF connectors would not be a problem with 415MHz RF. Feedpath loss would be negligible.
