Default First person view camera

Hello I want to add a FPV camera like drones use fitted on one of my drift rc, cars to have some fun. Can anyone point me in the direction of a kit or what all parts I need as I know nothing about drones and there seem to be endless options when it comes to FPV.

Won’t be for flying. Just some driving around the house or neighborhood from the couch or backyard. Slow drift car nothing crazy. Any help is appreciated as far as what I need and what might work well for my application.

You'll need RUNCAM HD camera like this one install onboard FPV race truck. Fits nice on 1/10th or smaller inside the cockpit. It has live video out and recording.

The FPV camera is mounted on small servo so i can view left or right where i'm going. You can check out the setup at this forum topic here: FPV rock crawling, development and building section
Here's how i mounted it:
