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.



RCST PIC programming Help


Recommended Posts

Hello!

I’m having some problems using PICStartPlus to program the PIC12C508 for the RCST.

I’ve already program several LoMA and had no problems with that.

I’ve used the default configuration bit’s, I’ve tried with MCLR Internal and External (that’s what I get, no Disabled possible!) …you name it!

I receive a message “… has secure code … want to proceed?” while programming. At the end after I read the PIC I only have about half the code lines programmed in the PIC as compared to the number of lines in the hex file.

Some features of the tester works, for my surprise – it centres nicely and only with the potentiometer totally to the 2.0ms position, it makes the servo rotate back and forth.

Is there anyone that might help me with this, please?

I know you can get a ST online at about $10, but as I’ve already invested some time and money in this project I would like to ended it (apart from the fun of doing it).

Many thanks.

Greetings from Portugal!

Hello!

Thank you very much for your prompt reply!

I did read the faq, but it is inconclusive regarding my particular problem.

I will program yet another pic and print screen the message I receive with MPLAB during burning!

Maybe you can help me then.

Many thanks.

Best regards,

Pedro Costa

with the potentiometer totally to the 2.0ms position, it makes the servo rotate back and forth.

If moving the pot to the 2mS position causes the servo to cycle back and forth, then I would believe that the pot is wired to the wrong PIC pin (or there is some other wiring/assembly problem).
