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 was announced several months ago (March 2021) to allow our members ample 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.



AirDog Auto-follow Action Sports Drone

Hmmm. There's no pilot. Just a wearable positioning wristband that the Quadcopter follows.

Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/airdog/airdog-worlds-first-auto-follow-action-sports-dron

It's very similar to the airdroid's follow me feature:

Looks like the Airdog is still in the pre-order mode. But 3D Robotics recently released their IRIS+ Quad with follow-me capabilities.



And yes, that is Colin Guinn narrating the 3dr (3D Robotics) video. A few months after the blow-up at DJI North America he joined 3dr.

BTW, given the fast evolution of the things coming from 3dr, it looks like it would be an exciting place to work. It seems like yesterday that the co-founder (Chris) was a hobby UAV enthusiast experimenting with a crude R/C stabilizer that was hacked from his son's Lego Mindstorm toy. And to think I felt sorry for him back then because of the primitive stuff he was working with. Impressive to see what has been accomplished in such a short time!
