    I suggest the best Gopro you can afford with a cheap eBay brushless gimbal. You can probably get by with some of the GoPro clones but I have no direct experience with them

    Does your P1 have the 7th ch control installed on the rear of the remote? If so, you should be able to hook-up and use pitch control for the gimbal.

    Now, if you want FPV or live video - that will require a TX/RX setup like Boscam 5.8Ghz, cables form your camera, etc.

    Be aware you can’t use 2.4Ghz or wifi video connection on P1 as it’s been reported to interfere with the remote controller.

    When I had my P1 it came with a mount for a GoPro camera.

    Look into a Mobius Camera.... its got really great video and still shot capability with all bells and whistles offered by GoPro at a fraction of the cost and a fraction of weight.

    I own 2 of them and fly them regularly on my P1's.
