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.

All;

Noob here. I would like to start my own science project and it involves R/C parts. I'm unfamiliar with sources of supply and was hoping somebody can provide some guidance. My pet project is to create a cart (3 feet long, 2 feet wide) and have it R/C'd. It would have to support 50lbs of weight (think toolbox). I would make the cart out of wood and marry the cart up with some R/C components (wheels, electroncis, etc...) to allow me to control the cart via a hand held unit (fwd, back, left, right). I guess the main question is where do I start?

Thanks for your time;

Dean

Hi Dean.

This forum is more focussed upon FPV ('First Person Video' i.e. you control R/C planes/helis/cars/whatever while looking at a video signal from the model itself, rather than looking at it from afar), rather than a forum about building R/C models themselves - although you will find some discussions relevant to building models specifically for FPV use.

You may get more interest/support for your R/C car(t!) on a forum like RCTech, where R/C car enthusiasts will be able to advise you on what sounds like, essentially, a bit R/C car project.
