Default converting a Phantom 1 to FPV

Hi all-

I have a working DJI Phantom 1 which I enjoy playing around with.

It came with a wifi camera operating at 2.4 GHZ and the camera does transmit to a phone or tablet.

I would really like to convert this to use FPV goggles and have the following questions:

I realize I need a camera and transmitter that operates on 5.8 in order to be compatible with most goggles. What would be recommended for a weekend flyer?

I also need some sort of power supply. I can probably mcgiver something off of the balance connection of the lipo (3s) but any suggestions would be appreciated.

Any thoughts on best way to mount camera?

Also probably need an antenna too--any thoughts?

Thanks for any help
