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.

Hi all, we´re preparing our III Spanish FPV meeting that´s going to be on September 12th and 13rd. We´re going to place a 50" LCD TV for general public and visitors watch the fpv flights live. We need to run a 40 m long rca video cable from our receiver to the TV. I haven´t used that long ever, do you think I´m going to have low signal or bad signal quality on the TV? Should I use the tipical video splitter to amplify a bit video signal?

I have never run a 40m cable but I have run a 20m cable, the cable I used was satilite TV cable and it was 100% good. I see no reason for a 40m run to be a problem, if you loose a bit of brightness you can always adjust the TV to compensate.

No, if your not recording it then I think you will have plenty of adjustment on the TV.

Just a little update we tried with an 80m good quality shielded 75ohm cable and quality plugs with a total success. No quality degradation, neither brightness or color, just went perfect.
