Hello

I am new to this and just wanted a clear understanding of the entire communication system. Does mavlink simply act as the communication protocol for between the autopilot and the telemetry module/PC which is wired to it, or does it also have a part to play in the wireless network.

Also can mavlink be attributed to one of the OSI or TCP/IP layers.

Any digital communication can be pleased somewhere in the OSI, mavlink would be Transport layer / 5.
It's not only a communication protocol, but also a message set, a framework.

So just for  the sake of clarity, mavlink needs an added network layer below it, for the transmission of its data. Something like a WiFi device or RF link.
