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.

Video transmitting from a remote controlled boat

Recommended Posts

Hi there
I'm based in the uk but have been reading a lot of forms on different questions people have asked and you guys really know your stuff and whited to know if you could help me with my small project.
I have got a remote control boat that I use for fishing and want to install a video camera and reciver to the boat to transmit a live video feed back the a reciver on the bank to view on a screen as it moves along as I would like to see what is on the bottom of the lake.
The camera will be mounted 2inchs below the surface of the water on the boat and the receiver can be mounted on the top of the boat above the water.
The boat is powered by two 6v batteries and can hold around 4KG of extra weight so I have no restrictions on the weight of the kit used. I need this to send a clear picture back at a range of 700ft across the water.
I think the hardest bit is going to find a camera that can show a very good image through the water to a depth of around 6 feet as the water may not be clear.
Please let me know your thoughts as I don't know what kit would be best or were to start with this.
