1 watt 2.4ghz video tx, Futaba 7C 2.4ghz, 900mhz XBEE compability?

Ok Im building a FPV easy star with autopilot and it will consist on a:

1 watt 2.4ghz video transmitter
Futaba 7C 2.4ghz radio/receiver
and a 900mhz xbee telemetry module

have anyone tested this setup, what problems have you got?

I for sure want a 2.4ghz radio, I have a 2w, 1w and 200mw 2.4ghz video transmitters so I can sell them and get a 1300mhz video tx instead but before I do that I want to make sure that my first setup on the top will work?

My opinion, dump the 7C and get either a 7C or 9C 72mhz - you can then use the 2.4ghz video gear and also not have to worry about lockouts when going just out of range. You won't be able to use 2.4ghz radio and 2.4ghz video together. If you still want to stick with 2.4ghz radio, then 900mhz or 1.3ghz are your two choices pretty much.

Yeah I might end up selling all my 2.4ghz gear, and get 1300mhz. I cant stand using stick antennas on my radio.

The XBEE will give real time telemetry data of my autopilot to my ground station like (position, airspeed, voltage, altitude, angle, and it will tell my antenna tracker where the plane is so it can point the antenna towards the plane)
