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.

Remote Camera Project

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am new in this forum i know but i will stick for a very long time here as i love to do DIY's.

I am currently doing a project which consist of having a remote control moving my camera up and down , right and left & trigger (so 3 channels)

Transmitter part - Encoder > Crystal Oscillator

Receiver Part - Receiver > Decoder

i Plan on replacing the 2nd part of the circuit (oscilattor) with a 20mS / 50Hz 555 timer multivibrator design (newer and less complicated) , will it work?

Now i am stuck on understanding how is each channel components is calculated and what does the transistor do to get the shot and transfers to the next channel.

What does the diode do?


Thank you very much everyone, detailed help will be awarded with paypal money ! (ntg is free ;) )
