I see that that covers 5v- 36v as I have not yet torn mine down and as a matter of interest is the stock eachine camera 5v or 12v?
12v is on the pdb, 5v is in the vtx (original camera is powered this way).
I don't remember if there is a 5v also on the pdb.

On the leds side I think.

there are lots of places you can connect the camera to on here. plenty of 5v and 12v pads all over the place.

Still waiting for camera to arrive. Excuse the noobie questions but am I right in thinking that all I need do is take the power from a 12v pad on the PDP instead of the 5v on the transmitter?
On a separate matter I also want to replace the rx for ppm/sbus rx I understand that I will lose LED's which doesn't bother me as I fly mainly fpv. Would this be straight forward ie just removing led loom? Thanks for your help.

Yup, i desoldered the led strip and switched to a Frsky X4R sbus receiver.

Afterwards I added a 8 led led bar and programed it through betaflight

which receiver do you plan on using?

Since PWM uses a bunch of wires switching to ppm/sbus will leave you with 4 wires that dont do anything. You will need to remove those, and just connect the one w/ 3 wires per servo.

then on the transmitter: make sure ppm is turned on
to access menu on I6 transmitter : press and hold both bottom inner trims while powering on the tx, hold ok button to access menu

<edit>
thats weird I just checked the radio and I dont see the ppm option

betaflight:
sbus: go to ports tab and enable uart port ... I think port 3
configurations tab: choose serial and sbus
hit save

ppm : just choose ppm in config tab hit save

Here's the 3d printed part http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2200909

And will make one more with a buzzer holder. therefore merged my design with this buzzer holder from Painless360 http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1264445
