I am probably not the best person to help you with this, but I am using the following:

for the plane. 2.4ghz xbee pro with integrated whip antenna

for the ground station, a USB connected stand alone modem with integrated antenna.

You can see a picture of the usb one here:

Be aware that I have not tested this yet, and I am new to paparazzi. I have all my hardware tested(sensors and servos all attached, and happily talking to rc and gcs) with the ftdi cable, and now I am about to solder to the xb oem module and try to achieve wireless communication.

Good luck.

What is needed to create the ground station.

I have seen the XBee 2.4 GHz modems from PPZUAV.

Is all I need the XBee v2 connector and XBee v2 wire from PPZUAV? Or do I also need the XBee2USB to connect to the computer? How about antennas? How do I connect the modem to the autopilot? Just solder some wire to the modem and connect it to UART1 on the autopilot with the appropriate Molex.
