Its pretty hard mounting FPV gear on helis but if I managed to mount everything on a trex 250 I'm sure you have the space!

Some mount the FPV cam under the skids some cut a hole in their canopy to fit the cam lens through. I drilled a hole at the very tip of the canopys nose and widened it until I could fit my cams lens through.

I used polystrene that fitted around the camera and then glued the polystryene onto the canopy so the camera would fit nice and tight.
