I want to build my first paparazzi aircraft. It would be nice if you could look over the following list and tell me if you have any suggestions or recommendations. I took two frequencies for data and video (868 MHz and 2,4Ghz) to avoid problems.

What I already have:
   * R/C Controller with 8 Channels (40 MHz) and a 3 state switch
   * 8 Cell Ni/Cd battery pack
* R/C receiver with 8 Channels (40 MHz) (I looked into it and found the 4017 IC so I think it should be fine)
   * Equipment for measuring, soldering and so on

Although I have the RC Controller I'm a total beginner.
What I'm planning to buy is:

Airframe: Multiplex Twinstar II
   including 4 servos and controller
   for 157 Euro at

   Tiny   with LEA-5H GPS
   including IR-Sensors
   fully assembled
   for ~240 Euro at

Gyros / IMU
   -> Are they necessary for a good performance of the autopilot ?

   Aerocom AC4868-250
   250mW @ 868MHz
80$ = ~ 50 Euro @
   -> I'm interested in the 15 km line of sight communication

Ground Based Modem
   again the Aerocom AC4868-250 as above,
-> I haven't found any module with a metal case (stand alone module for 868 MHz)
   -> If you know where I can get the stand alone module please tell me
Video Transmitter and Receiver 200mW @ 2,4 Ghz 150$ = ~ 95 Euro @

   12mm x 12mm x 12mm
   Color, 370 Lines
80$ = ~ 50 Euro @

Alternatively I have another video solution but with a bigger camera:
           470 Lines with night mode
           32mm x 32mm
MTV-53X10HP-K @

           FM2350TSIMP + external Control Chip
           200mW @ 2,4 GHz
66 Euro @

       Video Receiver
90 Euro @
           50 Euro @

Do you have any experiences with the different systems and dealers?.
I'm open for ANY recommendations.

I live in Germany so I can't use the 900Mhz modems.

Thank you VERY much
