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.

HD! WOW!

Great for a helmet cam or on a bike, but I don't see how it could be used for FPV. The wiring and connectors seem proprietary, and it seems like you have to use this recorder with this camera, and they have to be physically connected.

I think something like this could work if the recorder was small enough to actually take up with the camera, and it had a composite out to allow you to transmit the signal.

Not to take anything away from it. It'll probably work very well on helmets, in cars, and on bikes. I think Chasecam is coming out with something similar as well this year. I saw an announcement on their forum. My guess is that it will be cheaper than this.

I think in a lot of respects, HD is going to be very difficult to adapt to some situations where SD composite signals work very well, especially in the area of wireless transmission.

Correction: It does actually have a composite out. So, if the recorder is small enough to take up, it could work for FPV. I don't see any dimensions provided.

Dimensions (w/h/d)

Including the projecting parts and supplied battery and controller hook attached (excluding cable bush):

Control unit: 81 x 122 x 47mm

Camera head: 37 x 42.5 x 86.5mm

Mass: approx. 580g

Bigger and heavier than a common light camcorder, and 2.8m cable, so you wouldn't really put that onboard. But indeed good for helmet cams or such, albeit still a bit large and unfortunately narrow angle like a common camcorder (35mm Equivalent: 43 - 507mm).
