1) Use proven system and camera. Unless you are into fiddling and testing different stuff, you can save lot of head ache and issues with using proven setup. This goes for camera, gimbal/controller and multicopter. (as well as props and motors) use multicopter specific esc if you can, as it will help give extra stability.
