The ground station, includes from left to right: receiver, video to USB device, battery for receiver, and 3dr radio. I used 3M dual lock (like velcro, but plastic) to mount the items. My ground station is just a very inexpensive windows laptop that's small enough to go into the toolbox (11.2"). I used the 3dr kit for the video transmitter and receiver: https://store.3drobotics.com/products/5-dot-8-ghz-light-weight-video-transmitter-kit I bought the battery, the OSD board (overlays the data), and the camera elsewhere. The full 3dr kit is not unreasonable, it just comes with more than I needed. You only need the battery for the receiver (or another source of power), as the X8+ is prepared for the transmitter and OSD already. Once you point mission planner to your capture device, the composite video shows in the MP screen with the flight data--so you only have one place to look other than the RC. Only problems I had initially were the drivers for the capture device, nothing to do with the OSD or transmitter. The most challenging part of the entire affair has been (by far) tuning the gimbal so it does not vibrate when facing totally downward--that required a lot of tinkering--getting it to work straight ahead was a breeze, but the steep angle was a challenge to get right.
