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.

mirroring / flipping upside down a live feed

Recommended Posts

I just bought my first wireless system, but it's not actually for an something radio-controlled. I'm making a helmet with a built in LCD (as a heads-up display), that will be receiving a video feed from a camera with a angled perspective from a above. It's for a student project, and I'm actually hoping that someone might know of a way to mirror and possibly time-lag the video between either between the camera and the transmitter, or the receiver and the LCD.

I thought I could possibly just plug it into a laptop and run the video through software that would distort it. But since cameras might get mounted upside down/off-axis in rc cars/planes I thought there might be a more compact way?

Thanks a ton for any info.

In the old days you could swap the deflection yoke's connections on the CRT to mirror the monitor's image. Nowadays that is not possible, but some modern cameras and monitors have a reverse/mirror video feature available on them. But I've never seen one that could flip the video upside down.

Time lagging the video requires sophisticated processing. A PC or DVR would be needed.
