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.



Basic requirement for FPV Start up


Recommended Posts

I am looking to start with FPV.

I already fly RC and have a Futaba 6 EXA and JR 8 channels radios .

I do not want head tracking ,OSD etc to start with .

All I want to do is fly FPV to Start with and then add on after I get to be good at it .

I am thinking of a Fatshark RCV922 Aviator Edition combo with a 10mW receiver .

I am also getting a 500mW receiver additional to plug in later to enhance range .

Do you guys think this is OK or is anything additional to be added .

I got myself a RCV922 Aviator edition of Fat Shark with the 10 mW Transmitter and a CMOS camera with pan/tilt ( no head tracking or OSD ) and the fat shark goggles .

I have a a JR 8103 Tx on 72 mhz.

Can I connect the pan and tilt to one of the additional channels like channel 6,7 OR 8 of my receiver and operate them with varying degree eg like using the flap channel.

I plan to use my Multiplex Twin Star for my first FPV flight.

Yes. That's how it's commonly done. However you will need a seperate channel for tilt and pan. In addition, you would probably want to use a servo with a minimum of at least 180 degree rotation for the pan function.

The JR 8103 is an awesome transmitter. But, I don't think it will work with your head tracker. Its trainer mode (which is used for head tracking) only mixes CH1 - CH4, whereas you'll want the higher channels for pan and tilt. If that is what you want to do, then I think you'll need a different Tx.

I don't have a head tracker what I intend doing is connect one servo to channel 6 ie the flap channel with the servo and the knob centered so the knob to the right would mean right pan and left will be left pan .

The servos came fitted with the fat shark camera so I assume it has 180deg movement , will check it out though.

Thanks a lot for the help.
