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.

There are many amateur radio clubs in the UK. The one I am aware of (because my mate who is a member keeps on trying to get me to join - so little time, so much to do!) is at Milton Keynes (actually located in Bletchley Park). Their website will be found at http://www.mkars.org.uk/. Check out the Training page on the site as it has (brief details) of the three levels of licence and the ATV page. I will attempt to find out more info 'straight from the horse's mouth'. I presume the equivelent of the BMFA in the radio world, the RSGB at www.rsgb.org would be a good source of all sorts of information and also have details of clubs more local to you as MK would be a bit of a trek for you as it's bad enough for me!
