That link is last updated 2009 (from what I just saw). A lot has happened since then :) ... "without success" is pretty vague... to help you I know I would need something specific to tell you to do. 

"PPZUAV assembled kit"? Did you buy the PCB and assemble it or did you buy one assembled by PPZUAV? 

Yes, FTDI utility has two LED. One for power the other for XBee signal. Color doesn't matter. If the power one is on it's powered and if the XBee one is on XBee is transmitting/recieving. The XBee LED is up top by the XBee sockets. If it is off maybe your XBee needs configuring? I notice when programming the XBee in X-CTU software it goes out ... then back on after. 

Here's a schematic for that board.

I haven't solved my pb yet.

Where can I can find documentation about the LED on FTDI Board and Tiny Board (I have a PPZUAV assembled kit).
In particular, I have no led blinking on the FTDI board, does it mean that it's not powered? I supposed it was by the three threads link between the serial port on tiny board and the FTDI board but I'm not so sure anymore.
I have always the GCS blank pb.

On the other hand, I've rigourously followed the instructions given in

without success

I do need help please!
