if you have your board uavcan tested i will buy one

Have you considered using microhard ddl modules? Can you add newer airspeed sensors like the ms5525?

Jerry Giant   Dronee Pilot has CAN port , it comes from The Cube as on original pixhawk2.1 carrier board

DDL module slightly expensive for most of users. But you can connect to Raspberry pi computer module, we have onboard USB pins.  about New airspeeds sensor, it is very new. we really havent tested yet, but you can connect on board I2C pins. in future version we will definitely consider that

Looks great actually. Not inexpensive but it removes a lot of wiring clutter. Sadly, still no OSD. I think the compute module would need some graphics chips to do this. The lack of a better OSD is becoming a bit of an issue for Ardupilot. It would be a pity to have to connect a Minim OSD to this.

Great! :-D

 Marc Dornan i have found how to integrate OSD to raspberry pi . still not plug and play but it works .

I have developed a full graphical color OSD for PI using C++ (Based on MininOSD). It is very plug&play and support mavlink via TCP/IP or serial communication.

@Aytek Canak   link?

Comment by Marc Dornan on July 11, 2017 at 6:35am
Yes indeed. Please tell us more!

@Aytek -- for me and many others this has simply been a missing link. Can we have some details or is there a project page? Would this run on a BeagleBone Blue, for instance? I presume it was designed around a Navio FC. Will it only support Pi Cam? (which I guess is fine).
