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.



Texas Instruments is Buying National Instruments


Recommended Posts

TI announced today that it is purchasing National Semiconductors. If you own National stock then your $14 shares are now worth $25 each. For the rest of us, well I can't imagine the merger is going to be a great thing in the long haul. But we shall see.

Poor Bob Pease, I'm sure he is not pleased. Who is Bob? Well, for starters he is the guy that was the namesake inspiration for the "Floobydust" in this forum's title. He is a recently retired National Semi employee that wrote a whimsical magazine column for them. And he designed OPAMPs since the days when transistors were vacuum tubes. :)
