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.

PanCam Alternative Setup (Wired)

Recommended Posts

The connection J1 (RC In) Pin 7 of the PIC12F509 is used for the input of the R/C RX CHNL. Is there perhaps an alternative method of rather using a variable resistor (POT) to connect to Pin 7, VCC and GND? Joy sticks are usually available with a 10k or 20k variable resistor. I will not need a R/C since I will be using this Pan Cam Project for a JIB Arm (Camera Crane) to control the Pan and Tilt operation and the distance is only 4 meters.

Any advice will be highly appreciated.

I think that some 555 timer based servo signal emulators have unusual repetition rates that could affect PanCam's operation. For correct operation the servo pulse signal should be a standard 50Hz repetition rate (20mS period).
