    Yes, I have a second, fixed camera on my P2 and a video switch to change between cameras from my transmitter. Dead easy to do. I did it because I find it hand to fly FPV with a stabilised camera because I can't judge the attitude of the craft easily.
    You will need to change the transmitter and receiver to something else if you want to do this by the way.

    About to install a cheap ($70) Fatshark pan&tilt camera, for slightly different reasons: experimenting with Manual mode flying without expensive camera+lens+gimbal on board, in the likely event I f*ck up. Not sure if I will ever run dual cameras. If so, most likely will point the Fatshark camera aft for backwards flying during filming.
