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 would like to get datas live transmitted on a LCD display to ground floor.

( Eagle tree : Seagull is too expensive for me )

Are there some kind of projects working well ?

Best would be possibility see datas in feet and meters ( i'm in France )

Many thanks for your help,

Hm there are lots of video overlays around, but systems with an independent LCD on the ground are pretty scarce. The Eagletree comes to mind as the main one, another one being this: http://www.elv.de/Set-Sender-VAT-300Empf%C...10/detail2_9179

Beware, it's a kit and everything needs to be assembled and the parts soldered.
