FPV camera from rear view park assist cam?

For a FPV system I'd like to use a camera I have from rear view parking assist kit I never mounted. The camera outputs very nice video, but the picture is inverted (as looking in the mirror). I am sure there should be a way to mod the camera to output the image normally (perhaps by soldering a jumper, or removing a trace). Enclosed here are few close views of the camera's board.

Can someone help with this?

Thanks,
Nick

Most time is in the programming. So you may be out of luck for that one unless you use a mirror.

I had a mirror cam on my plane\car when flying FPV

It`s pretty easy to use, instead of reversing the cam (that mostly is impossible) I did reverse the controls on the radio

So flying FPV mirrored was no big deal..
Flying LOS impossible :P
