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.

applying the servo-tester to a gyro-servo combination

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I saw an interesting article on a web page of this forum's site on a servo-tester, and I am wondering if it will work with a gyro/servo combination eliminating the receiver/transmitter.

I am trying to build a gizmo that requires a gyro (using the theEflite G210HL) to sense the position of the hand and will activate a servo (using the Futaba S9257) when the hand moves. I have all the parts incuding a 4.8 volt battery pack but it is not working, The gyro is flashing a red light which indicates something is out of whack. So I was searching on the internet for a solution and found this site.

I suspected that receiver might be required to run this setup either connecting to the gyro or the receiver. The servo connects to the gyro and has no extra connectors, the gyro has one extra connector (1 wire) that would go to the receiver.

Do you think that the servo-tester will provide the signal that the gyro needs?
