"I have had good luck with a Nikon s9300. Comes with a cable you can use for live video out. You can even get creative and stick a servo on the camera so you can trigger the shutter to capture a still shot while you are in video mode."

"The GoPro cameras can be powered with USB which is 5 volts (same as radio control gear). It might be a good idea to use a dedicated BEC for the camera so it doesn't overload the circuit powering the radio control gear and/or autopilot."

"At what resolution? The GoPro cameras can record in HD but I think their output of the live video is SD. The duration could be a problem too if relying only on the internal battery."
