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.

Recommended setup?

Sorry for posting something that has probably already been laid out a hundred times. But, I don't have much time to research the different set ups and I'm sure there's a seasoned pro out there that has paved the way. I have a Cularis and want to get a good setup with video and auto pilot. What do you suggest?

If you dont have much time Eric then this is the wrong hobby for you. As has been asked many time before it all depends on many factors. EG. what country are you in? do you want to stay 100% legal? what quality of video do you want? what range do you want? what type of flying will you be doing? will you have a helper to point your RX aerial? do you want head tracking pan and tilt? what functions do you require from your autopilot? what is your skill level in electronics? how much are you prepared to spend?

Sorry but its a how long is a bit of string question, ask 10 members here and you will get 10 different answers as we all fly different planes and have different requirments.
