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.

Hi there,

I have totally rebuilt a Gaui 500X: better motors, ESCs and a TMF Pro controller. All the original Gaui electronics have been replaced.

This is the first time I am using Gaui LEDs - simple pairs, not enormous strips. They are simply to show the rear of the machine but where on earth do I connect them for power? They terminate in a normal 3-pin plug. I have spare channels on the TMF or BATT on the RX unit.

Any clues/correct answer would be gratefully recieved.

Never used them, but I would expect that they plug into a spare channel of a R/C Rx. They appear to be remote activated, so test them on a spare or shared channel to see if they respond to Tx stick/switch position.

Late commenting...

I'm putting those Gaui LEDs on my 500x, and the module on them is triggered by the RX output-- they are "Off" at a pulse width of 1000 uS, blink at several Hz at a 1500 uS pulse width and are full on a 2000 uS pulse width. I'm going to operate mine from the Throttle channel, either from a Y-connector of a mix to an unused channel. They are quite bright and should provide useful orientation.
