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 keep meaning to post about this but I dont think I did. A while back during the snow I was flying my BiTwinstar with the G9 on it to get some pics of the snow coverage. A one point at only about 3/4 of a mile the picture was lost and I asked my spotters where the plane was. The answer was very unexpected, they said it was behind a big snow cloud!

The good news is that after a very long 30 seconds or so the video came back as the plane drifted back to me and out of the cloud (I always try to fly upwind).

Has anyone else had this happen?

I'm a fair-weather pilot so I avoid flying in the cold, wind, or any other obnoxious mother nature situation. :) But I certainly would imagine that the 5.8GHz RF would be attenuated a bit if you got behind a thick cloud. Glad it ended well!
