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.

Ok....I'm brand new to all this FPV stuff and it is making my head spin.

I realize that I have some learning to do so here is my first post and

my first question :)

I have a finepix Z10 point and shoot camera that I take aerial pics and video with.

I just start the video, or set it to take pics every 2 seconds and send the plane up,

hoping that I get some good shots or vid footage. It would be nice to have live feed

on the ground to see and control what I am shooting.

Is this possible with a point and shoot camera??

Yes indeed, you have 2 options.

If there is a live feed output from your camera you can use this for you video TX or you can just mount a small cctv type camera to point the same way as your main camera.

I use the second metheod but the choice is yours, but have there good and bad points.
