Default Getting 5V to Power a FPV Camera from my RX?

Hi there, is it possible to get 5V to Power a FPV Camera from my RX?

Basically, I have a SP Racing F3 Flight Controller. I am using the IO_1 port PPM to power my receiver (FrySky iA6B RX) AFHDS 2A and communicate all the channels.

I know that the Receiver will output 5V from one of the other ports, but will there be enough power supplied from the flight controller on IO_1 to power the receiver and the camera. I am worried that it will brown out mid flight and I will lose control.

The PDB can output at least 2A, the RX can also output 2A. I'm just worried about how much the FC can output through the IO_1 port, so if someone could tell me that, that would be great.
