Stand-alone Telemetry system?

Hi all,

I'm currently in charge of the avionics in my University group project - to design and build an MAV.

Two of the design requirements are:
1) Must use telemetry to stream back live GPS position data to my laptop.
2) Must stream back live video footage from an on-board camera.

I'm pretty much set on buying a FY-30A auto-stabiliser unit ( ) to aid in flying the MAV.

Does anyone know of a standalone GPS&Telemetry kit that I can use which has a transmitter attached to a GPS module (for on-board) and a receiver which interfaces with my laptop that can stream GPS data back live?


A telemetry kit which will work with the FY-30A in some way to do the same? For example the XBee telemetry kit looks good, but I don't know if it works with the FY-30A or anything.

Thanks in advance!

Any decent TX/RX has two way data built in these days.

That's just one of them they all have some sort of a something at the minute.

This fits your bill
