I'm using this ultralight yet powerful Eachine Nano VTX on my 3inch whoop. I like the vtx but the Nano 3 cam I ve used is not well suited for outdoor flying.

Tinywhoop with micro HD camera (1 min 31 sec)

This is probably the cheapest way to get hd footage from your tiny whoop. I installed a 5$ sq11 camera on top. In order to save weight I decased it. Quality of the footage is still mediocre.

No need to decase your Gopro! You can save 20 gram by simply powering your action cam over its USB port. You only need breadboard jumper wires, a USB step down module and an USB-C plug with PCB. My 3inch cinewhoop weighs only 236 gram with a Gopro Hero 7 black and a Tattu 4s 450mAh battery AUW! In this video it is shown how it's done! More details on the build are available as instructable here.

This is the lightest F4 1S brushless FC in the current market. Slim and sleek in design, 2.69g in weight and better performance on function for maximum weight savings, power, and responsiveness. I had troubles to bind with the integrated Frsky spi receiver in D16 mode but with CLI commands it worked out.
