Sounds like an interesting project. I would recommend a controller for dedicated OSD and another one for processing data, controlling servos etc. will make things a lot easier.

Can I ask what GPS-module you have used?

Waiting for paste stencil? Just grap a soldering iron
I've got a few project that are still just documented on scraps of paper
But I've been using a blog lately and finding it easier to create and update.

The GPS is UBlox module (NEO-6Q). I got some a while ago from the local rep and they were not too expensive. There is at least one footprint compatible module available. The antenna is off-board. I've been using a amplified antenna that looks like a GPS Mouse, DC up the coax for the amplifier. It's a bit heavier but works well.

I assembled the prototype with the soldering iron... that was a fun evening The cpu is only about 5x5 mm with 32 pins and the resistor packs are small.
