    Sure you can do that go into the menu and turn the camera upside down and all you need is a stick on holder. But you may not like the results of your video.

    The gimbal is not 100% necessary as it's function is to counter the movements of your craft to give you a smooth video. If you mount your GoPro in a solid mount, as you manoeuvre your craft all the tilt and turns of your flight will show up in the video. For example, as you push forward to gain speed, the video will show a tilt downwards.

    In which case the answer to your question is yes, you can get live view from your GoPro without using a gimbal.

    You need a cable to connect the video out from your GoPro to the transmitter you are using to broadcast your FPV.
