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.

FPV to operate using mobile network

Recommended Posts


first i want to tell you how this thread have been helpful to me to get a general idea about how FPV works and thank you for that.

i am working on making a FPV operated through the cell phone network internet, i am not worried on how to connect to the plane because that's actually my specialty i am a communications engineer, i am more worried about how to operate inside the FPV.

i just wanted to get any useful tips if you encountered any thing like this before, someone trying to control the plane through a cell phone inside it or even what model do i start studying its controls and flying mechanism

i am thinking about buying a plane and installing my system into it but i have no clue of what do i get and what might be actually compatible with that

i would appreciate your help very much, and if you find this lacking some details just forgive me because it is still a research for now and haven't really started working on details.

thank you again and waiting your reply

This has come up quite a few times over the years and the main problem is lag, I surgest you conduct some tests to see if you can still control a plane with the lag you get. If you intend to send the video feed back the same way then it will be worse so lots of testing before you fly!
