do you need both? I can't see them on the HK website. Is it possible that you could forward the links to them?

You need one for Tx and one for Rx, but you won't need to order the uno and the nano. I think you can use two nano.

+1 with the vote to go with two Nano's. I have a Uno and it was good for the initial testing.

Typical: Any idea about the other "bits" that are required to complete the setup? I mean, besides the physical hardware for the tracker pan/tilt.

So would I be right if I said that the audio link is not useable if we use this setup? I like being able to hear the motor and sounds of my ground rover. The Wiki does not mention the connection of the GPS. Can someone elaborate on that?

how are people powering their gps unit? Can we use this setup with an APM 2560 somehow?

If you use a STEREO video Tx, you can use audio telemetry and listen your motor, if not, you have to choose, telemetry or motor sound.

I Split the gps GND and Tx serial between osd and opendiyAT, the osd powers the gps receiver (but the opendiyAT arduino can also power the gps receiver, you choose).

If you have a left and a right audio channels (To my knowledge, only Airwaves based Tx/Rx have stereo audio inputs).

Why so many resistors on the Tx side? Don't you only need two?

Taken from the caption below the picture:

"

I did not have the proper resistors, so I used a pair of 3.57 for the 1.8, and 4) 1.5 and a 2.2 for the 8.2. Power in on the red/black side Audio out opposite
