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 was announced several months ago (March 2021) to allow our members ample 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 have managed to get an X10 camera working with another systems 2.4 GHz receiver. However, I need some help getting the final fine tuning on the VCO of the transmitter board.

I understand that the one trimpot by itself is for brightness.

It seems that I can get it adjusted spot-on, and when the lighting changes, the picture becomes distorted.

Any help is greatly appreciated on this project.

Are you sure the receiver is compatible? Differences in expected video levels and pre-emphasis curves can make a mess of things.

Well, I can get a crystal-clear picture one moment, and the next day it seems to be a little off, or a lot off. I do have an oscilloscope, but it has a 400 MHz bandwidth. I can only adjust them to where it looks good, but when the lighting changes, it affects the camera.
