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.

Are ground FPV vehicles allowed?

Thanks guys!

Terry, the tilt servos are HK939mg and the gyro is an old GWS PG-01NP... that I had laying around.

Ya I'm liking the gyro on the tilt... but it's a little weird at first. Also going fast over rough terrain it really gets a workout.

I may need to turn down the gain. I just set gain at half and drove, didn't try to tweak it at all.

Contrast the Blizz vid.... with this one with no gyro... and "sorta" the same setup...

I've been having alot of fun with a Traxxas Slash set up with a 500mW 1.2ghz video system. Using stock whip on the Vtx and an optimezed 8dbi patch on the Vrx. I'm amazed at the video clarity I get out past 600 feet, even with small trees and a small building in the way! I usually just set the patch on the ground, leaning up against my "groundstation" (Cardboard box...heh). It works, but now I'm looking into building my own SPW for the Vtx and Crosshair for the Vrx. Hopefully they will improve video quality AND range.

I'm using my Futaba 9C airplane transmitter for control, with a Corona 72mhz synthesized Rx. Awesome range!
