An LC Filer is a circuit that removes frequencies from a power supply and smooths / cleans it so the equipment being powered gets a clean power source. There are many causes of the interference. ESC interference can sometimes be fixed by simply wrapping the servo lead from the ESC round a ferrite ring 5 or more times. What is one ? An LC is one of the most basic filters going. Are they new technology ? Not at all, if you sat in your front room now chances are your looking at 2 or more. They sound complicated Not at all, with the most basic soldering skills and a near by maplins store your laughing. There are a few different filters we could use for FPV. 1) Your power cable that’s going from your lipo to your transmitter / camera 2) Ferrite ring 3) Capacitor A ferrite ring off ebay, get a pack of them, you can never have enough ferrite rings when Fpving 1 Amp Rectifier Like this:

There seems to be some confusion about peoples answers, definitely near the receiver, near the servo. Perhaps a bit of understanding will help, a wire will naturally act as an antenna picking up various RF signals or as we see it interference (RFI), likewise a wire near a magnetic field will induce an electrical current.

A Ferrite choke is designed to breakup the RFI that is collected on a wire and wait, wait, wait, CHOKES the RFI from continuing along the wire. Thus the placement of a FC depends on what interference you're trying to solve. If you have servo twitching, placing a FC near the RX would be useless, since the interference would come from the servo line into the servo and never get choked. Hence the reason why many ESC have a ferrite choke at the RX end, to prevent RFI from disrupting the signal into the RX.

If you have PLOC (prolonged loss of contact) between your TX and RX and suspect RFI than placing FC near the RX would be more appropriate. The Most Amazing Invention Ever For FPV (CAT 6) [Archive] - FPVLAB - FPV Without The Interference. 2nd February 2012, 12:32 PM Having gone 16+ out miles on 2.4, I decided that for the most part my personal knowledge development for 2.4gHz is "complete". I come across a few things here and there to test, but basically "I got it" when it comes to 2.4. One would think that there is very little difference between the frequencies but there is.

My main rig can go past 20 miles easily, and my 2.4 link can as well. So - I moved to 1.2. HOLY SMOKES!!! My secret? 4 twisted pairs. This is what I was using before - STD CAT6. This (below) is what you get with the above link: each pair is twisted, AND each pair has it's own shield. I don't stop until I have the quietest (electronically) planes on the planet. Hucker 2nd February 2012, 12:43 PM Are those 26awg wires big enough for your plane or do you need to double up when powering bigger servos? Schnellschnell j Danub.

Sure, you can power off the main flight pack, I have been doing that ever since I started this hobby. You need to realize though that an ESC generates quite a bit of noise on the supply rail and if you don't get rid of that it will be visible in your videos. A simple linear voltage regulator usually works well if you need to power a 5V camera off of a 3S (11.1V) pack. It simply converts the excess voltage into heat and thus usually requires a bit of additional cooling.

The added advantage is that in essence they act as an RC (resistor, capacitor) network (the voltage regulator can be seen as a variable resistor), significantly (up to 60dB) attenuating any noise on the supply rail. If you have a 12V camera you're faced with a dilemma, you obviously can't use a linear regulator as we already are at the desired voltage.

Now the best thing to do is to add one of more LC (inductor, capacitor) networks (you can simply daisychain them). Hope this explains things a little better. Cheers, Sander. Glitch Free Installatiions - FPV Wiring Best Practices to Reduce Interference. Build Your Own Drone First Person View. The First Person View or FPV section of BYOD offers the best selection of hand-picked products from Fat Shark and ImmersionRC, the world leaders in First Person View technology, DJI Innovations the flight control experts and 3D Robotics from the open source community. The two worlds of FPV and UAV / Drones have come together over a very short period of time, First Person View or FPV flights were once a type of remote-control (RC) flying that started out in the world of RC planes which involved mounting a small video camera and transmitter to an RC aircraft to send down a live video link of the flight in real time, the pilot would use Fat Shark Attitude V2 goggles or a portable LCD screen to see and fly from the aircraft as if they were on board the RC plane.

If you are looking to use you current aircraft or just starting out into the RC world with either a plane or a multi rotor aircraft for fun or professional flights we will have a system that will meet your requirements.

FPV Head tracking? - RC Groups. DIY FPV Goggles Part 1. Make your 3D FPV Headset with their hands! 5 Tips For FPV Success - RC Groups. A Few Tips For The Budding Video Pilot The day has finally come. You've surfed the FPV section on RCGroups day and night for months, and put together a wallet-punishing list of components and the airframe you want; it's finally time to build your first fixed-wing FPV platform.

But before you start cutting bays in that foam wing, just put the knife down and step away from the soldering iron. At this point, you've read enough to make some decent decisions in the equipment department, but it's still all too easy to cobble those high-dollar parts together on an airframe and see some pretty lackluster performance. Here's a few general tips to help put you on the right flight path, from someone who's learned most of them the hard way over the years. Many of these tips are common knowledge to seasoned armchair pilots, but can really make the difference between a miserable and successful FPV experience to the fresh blood out there.
