I mounted it on the wing, just far enough out so that the camera doesn't see the prop. My videos are clean and clear with no "jello effect" at all.
Are you wanting to send live video plus telemetry data down from your MiniMag? If so, I'd be interested in the hardware you are considerating using.
As for lifting power, my Super Cub will lift a bit more than the MiniMag, since it's a little bigger with a 48 inch wingspan. But I have an Apprentice, still in the box, and it should be my best lifter. My plan is to add at least telemetry to it, and hopefully also FPV video.

I bought my fpv at hobbyking. It's heavy, but with my new motor, 3s lipo and a 9x5 prop, it works.
The only problm is.... i made a bad landing yesterday while trying my new set up and... broke the nose of the plane...
