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 am currently attending college to get a degree in electrical and electronic engineering. I have decided to build a UAV for my project. I have gone through a lot of sites and papers on this topic, but I am not able to get a clear idea on how to start the project and what are the most basic components that are required to build a UAV. So could someone help me with this?

There are many types of UAV, what type, size, abiliy. How much off the shelf do you want, how much do you want to make. what experiance do you have in flying, electronics, model building?

Hey,

Thank for replying. I was looking at more of a long range high altitude UAV. The size is not yet decided. I dont have much experience in flying or making uav. The designing is done by an aerospace engineering.

You can make the airframe from anything depending on size. If you dont know much about aircraft design then maybe just buy a model plane kit of your required size and work on getting the electronics right.

Its normal to use your video downlink audio channel to receive data from your aircraft. If you need to send data to the aircraft then lots of 2.4 systems will work ok with 2.4 rc. If not then a UHF link is common.

I cant say you will get 1km range through wood as it is far too complicated to work out. All I can say is that it would be a good choice to start your testing. I also have no experience with the apm2.5 so you will have to find a suitable modem from the information you have.

This hobby is all about testing out your ideas and making your own equipment where possable even if it has got a bit plug and play in recent years.
