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.

I am new to the forum, and not an RC'r, but seek advice. I am putting together a webcast of a boat race and need to find reliable tx/rx gear to reach 1.5 - 2 miles. The boats will be running on a 2 mile oval course, and the receivers will be at a base station mid-way through one straightaway. There will be two cameras on relatively stationary platforms (anchored pleasure craft) in line of sight at the opposing turns in the oval. I know that this gear would likely require FCC license, and that is not a problem. I am a producer, not a technician, so hoping someone can recommend a set-up that they have personal experience with. Thanks!

check out any o the fpv guys, nghobbies, rangevideo... ummm couple others, look at .5-1 watt system(900mhz, 2.4ghz, not sure about the new 5.8ghz), 1 omni receiver and 1 directional... although i think 2 omni could be better for you(omni are the antenna's straight up, directional are the other style antennas, odd looking). And a diversity box that switches between the 2 best signals. Keep antenna's high as possible and as far from electronics and metal/carbon fiber as possible.

Hey, thanks very much for the response! I emailed nghobbies and they got back to me right away. The guy asked a bunch of pertinent questions and is coming up with a proposed solution.
