It might seem a dumb question, but why not use a Fatshark camera which would plug straight in, compatible with the power supply from the vtx as well?

I see, you need something waterproof, so the red plug on the camera goes to the battery. You can ignore that one, or replace it with a Deans plug or XT60, whatever your battery uses.

You'll need to splice the yellow video plug. Pretty straightforward really.

vTX
Red=5v lead (ignore this)
Black=Ground (Connect to the ground wire on the video plug)
Yellow=Video (Connect to the video wire on the video plug)
White=Left microphone (ignore this)
Blue=Right microphone (ignore this)

Or if you want, solder the Black and Yellow wires on the vTX to a male RCA plug and stick that into the camera jack.

If anyone thinks i'm wrong, let us know, i'm just going with experience from my 5.8 boscam.

BTW, product page for the RTX, the pin layout is on the sticker.

cut the RCA plug off. Strip back the yellow and ground leads.
Connect the yellow to the yellow wire on the Fatshark provided lead.
Connect the black/grn wire from the RCA plug to the the black Fatshark cable.
Splice a second connector to the Fatshark power plug. Add a connector to plug in the
battery and put a connector on the camera power wires (cut the red plug off).
The attached image does not show the black/grn lead from the camera going to the Fatshark
6-pin plug. You need the grn for the video. You are NOT using the red,black green and white wires on the
6-pin plug. leave them off and coil them up. They are there to supply 5v to a camera. Use a 12v battery pack like
a 3s-11.1 450mah pack to power camera and fatshark vtx
