    Oh, more confused now. You mean in fact the RC radio does not receive telemetry and GPS signals?

As far as GPS goes, the radio isn't really "receiving" the GPS signal, the flight controller is. It's just receiving the signal from the vtx which is displaying information of what the GPS is telling the flight controller to do.

    A basic rc radio (transmitter/ controller) does not receive telemetry. You need to move into the mid to higher end radios to receive telemetry. Regardless if the radio can receive telemetry or not it is still called a transmitter/controller.
