The unit does have some 5V pin outs on the opposite side to the video terminals, but I didn't find any info about whether you could safely use them to supply cam power. I would guess yes, since the cam would only be low current.

Fatshark and IRC VTXs have 5v output, so you could power the VTX through the Arkbird's 12v/video plugs, then power the cam off the VTX's 5v line?
