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.

DX-201 DPS Camera - what is the battery for the OSD remote?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I just got my new dx-201 camera from RV, the image is great, the case is heavy, and I think we have a bit of a lack of documentation.

first of all, changing the original case to the metal case, its a bit scary, you have to expose the CCD sensor... and its a 150 bucks camera....

then you have to figure out the power source polarity on your own, nothing on the manual.

and now I was thinking about setting up the camera, but, guess what? It came without the control battery, I am not sure on which one to use on it,

because its not on the documentation either.

The mount for it looks like a watch battery, but a little bigger....

does anyone know which is the battery model that goes inside the little remote?


So far I can say that its the best quality image I ever seen on these size cameras....

just need a little more documentation to be done, a lighter case, and the connectors on it are huge and heavy, not ready to FPV.

If you know which is the battery for it, pls let me know...

No need for the battery. Just hold down 'menu' to enter the OSD menu.

The powerconnector is center pin positive.

Cool, Thanks a lot, Vova!

Its amazing the quality of the images I am getting here... I will post some videos soon...
