Default Help installing UFO-MX400-Z-26 camera

I have a MX400 quad and want to install this camera but the only info I have found is not to switch + and - poles.
The power wire has 3 connections Red in the middle with black and white on ether side.My problem is which color goes towards the center of the contol board ( black or white ) and which set of pins 6 or 7.
I am using a DEVO 10 tx..

Red & Black are your Positive & Negative. The white would be a signal lead. Does the wire come from the camera or a servo?

Wizzard it comes from the camera,but it looks like a servo connector wire. [ same type connector large black connector with ridge/lip to fit in slot but this board has none ] It also has a small board in line, must be for power regulation.
In instruction manual for MX400 it says bind plug face towards left
I'am supposed to be able to turn video on and off from the aux 2 switch on transmitter when installed.

Just looked at setup video on youtube.The one where they unpack and install telementry.The telementry uses same type of connector red wire in middle and white and black on either side.Pausing the video I see the black wire towards the edge of the board and white wire towards the center of board..so I'am going with that...

Just tried connection as above and it works [ black wire towards outside edge of board,white towards center]
Also make sure gear switch is aux 2 in transmitter.
Well I hope this will help other newbs like me....

+10 for Wizzard .....he pointed me in the right direction
