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.

Hello there, i have posted once before and found this forum to be very helpful.

I have a project that requires long range video transmition and understand that a rock solid picture is dependent on many factors such as distance, direct line of sight etc

I have been using to great effect a 1.2-1.3ghz 850mw system.

I am now wandering if there is anyone that could recommend a system capable of transmitting and receiving even further than this one.

The link would be used solely for camera assist.

Can anyone help.

Understand you may require more info

Many Thanks

Do you need omni aerials for your project? What is your project? Is much easier if you share the full picture.

Range in general is increased by higher gain aerials.

Will you have line of sight to the car at all times?

I would think your current set up should be able to give you what you want. If not a simple reflector added to your RX aerial may do the trick or an 8dBi patch.

Is the TX aerial on the car clear of the car bodywork?

Hi Terry

No there will not be line of sight for around 10% of the track as there is a tunnel and an area where the vehicle dips below ground level

Yes i can ensure the Ariel is on the outside of the vehicle.

An 8dbi patch eh........... I will order one and give it a thorough test.

If there is anything you or anyone else can think of that would help then please share.

Otherwise Thank you ever so much Terry, for giving me your time.
