Long range telemetry system options

I need a telemetry system for my Mini Talon fitted with a Pixhawk. There are so many options and opinions so I'm struggling to work out what's best. Here's what I want:

Plane will fly autonomously up to 20KM away, not always in line of sight.
I want data link in Mission Planner so I can track location and battery condition etc
Video transmission not needed
Is there one "kit" which will do this or do I need to buy all components separately?

Any help appreciated. I'm a bit new to this side of things....
