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.



E-sky gyro fault ?


Recommended Posts

I have twice had an odd fault while flying FPV with my new Biplane Twinstar with gyro on the ailerons. While flying along level the plane just goes left wing down for whatever reason. The first time full aileron was not enough to stop the left turn and rudder had to be used as well, after a few seconds everything returned to normal. I suspect the gyro so would be interested if anyone has had this problem?

It can be seen here at about 9:05

Yes my plane is to fly without it next, I'm not sure if its the gyro or the left engine/gearbox at fault.

I fly the plane with both the single and twin wings so the gyro was fitted anyway, it was added to help smooth the aircraft on windy days. It dose have less effect with the biplane wing as only the lower wing has ailerons.
