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 have a 500mW 2.4Ghz transmitter and a 900MHz 200mW transmitter.

Here is a picture of the connectors that came with my 500mW 2.4Ghz TX transmitter

and here is a picture of the connectors that came with my 900MHz 200mW transmitter.

I'm looking for a device like the one on this transmitter that has pins for connecting the power and video,

here it shows the battery and camera connected.

I don't have a camera, but want the video feed to come from the AV out on my digital camera. It uses a standard yellow RC plug for composite video (I don't need the audio).

If anyone can point me to where I can acquire the electronics and cables to accomplish this it would be much appreciated.

Yes, that dpcav.com 2.1mm barrel power cable will plug into your Tx's power connector.

I think you will find that most of us here are involved with model aircraft. So, light weight and high reliability are required when we install the wireless video system in a R/C aircraft. To achieve that we cut off the bulky cables and make custom cables using our favorite connectors and more flexible wires. This requires experience soldering/wiring the circuitry, so it is not recommended for everyone. Some FPV shops sell customized cables, so check with your Tx vendor if you are not able to create your own.
